Singing, dancing "CATS" coming to Seattle, March 26-31
Dan Hoy as Munkustrap and the North American touring cast of "Cats."
A revival of the popular, long-running Broadway musical "CATS" will be in Seattle the last week of March.
Based on T.S. Eliot’s "Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats," accompanied by the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, the musical first opened in 1982 and has since been seen by more than 73 million people in more than 30 countries.
This revival includes new sound design, direction and choreography but with the same beloved framework including the hit song "Memory," which has been recorded by more than 150 artists.
"CATS" will be at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre for eight performances from March 26 through March 31, including an ASL/AVIA-interpreted show and one open-caption show.
Suitable for kids? More than some musicals, this show probably will fascinate even young kids because of the humans in cat costumes, the dancing and singing. But it is not specifically a kids' show, and there is always the consideration of attention span: The show runs 2 hours, 30 minutes, with one intermission.
Tickets start at $40 and are available online via Seattle Theatre Group, by calling 1-800-982-2787 or in person at The Paramount Theatre Box Office (Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.).
Immerse yourself in everything about this production by going to its website.
And something else to look forward to: the first live-action film adaptation of "CATS," is set for release on Dec. 20, just in time for the holidays.
