Many years ago a group of friends invited me to go see Cats at the Forrest Theater. I had no idea what it was about but heard it was very popular at the time. Excellent show!! Costumes, songs and scenery. Glad to have seen this Broadway show. Would love to see it again this year.Amelia

AN AMAZING SHOW WITH AMAZING THINGS
I discovered Cats the summer of 2017 and found out the Broadway version revival was closing I had to see it fast me and my Dad took a trip to New York to see the show we sat in the high level and the view was fine the lights went out and characters were running around in Green Eyes and there were tons of acrobatics and modern dance moves during intermission you can go on the stage and take pictures and I will Never forget the moment Tantomile waved back at me this was about the BROADWAY production I've never been to Chicago but you should bring your family there are a few pelvic thrusts (one feisty feline Rum Tum Tugger) and a racial slur (Heathen Chinese) but handle it in a creative way take your family if you want to have a great night out!

CATS BUSHNELL 1/29/19
This was probably the 4th or 5th performance of Cats my wife and I have seen over the years including twice on Broadway and we both think that overall this was probably the best one. The cast was fantastic especially in the ensemble numbers. The dancing and voices all great.

This was my third time attending a CATS performance. My first time was at the Peace Center in Greenville, SC. I had a front row balcony seat and was familiar with the TS Eliot ‘s book as well as the music. The second time was at the same theater with front row seats. Last evening, 8/13/19, I was 6 rows form the stage in Charlotte , NC. Once again, I reread the poems before attending the show and am very familiar with music. I LOVED IT!! The cast was younger that previous casts, but oh so talented. They had more eye contact with the audience than I had previously experienced and I thought more facial expression over all. The cast appeared to thoroughly enjoy what they were doing. Very enjoyable evening and the staff at the theater were courteous and very helpful. After reading some of the other reviews I will make this comment, preparation is a useful key to a lot of things, especially musical theater. To the cast, thank you for your hard work and great performance.

THE MUSICAL HAS STAYED TRUE TO THE ORIGINS
Saw CATS last night in Toronto .. after having seen the production at Elgin Theatre almost 40 years ago. The cast of course changed and some minor changes, but thankfully the production stayed with the original superb show. The music as always was superb - I could never get enough of Jellicle Cats nor Skimgleshanks nor Mister Mistofelees. The words in Gus the Theatre Cat rings a bell for many of us, as does Memories. These songs result in, Im sure, Im not the only one with tears welling. Totally enjoyed it , will attend again, and hope it returns in the not too distant future.
