CL RECOMMENDS
CL Critic Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: In case you’re one of the few people on Earth who hasn’t seen Cats yet, here is your chance. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s megahit musical from 1981 is getting a refresh at the Byers Theatre with some additional material written by Trevor Nunn and Richard Stillgoe. The long-running feline frolic, which won more awards than you shake a stick at, has been presented in over 30 countries, translated into 16 languages, and seen by more than 73 million people worldwide. Liberally lifted from the book “Old Possum’s Book Of Practical Cats” by T.S. Eliot, this version is directed and choreographed by Tony winner Baayork Lee, one of the stars of the original Broadway cast of A Chorus Line. “Since taking Broadway by storm more than 40 years ago, Cats has delighted audiences of all ages, all around the world,” said Executive Director Natalie DeLancey. “We’re honored to have Baayork return to Atlanta to share her considerable, award-winning talents, and help us craft a memorable finale to our fifth season of shows.” -KCM
