dancers are good dancers. Memory is a good song which repeated for three times. Yes... These are the only two compliments i can find. Other than that... The stage general performance is way below average and the good dancer can not cover up tedious plot. I would strongly recommend not wasting your two and half hours on this show.

WORST PLAY EVER SEEN
I am from Toronto and have seen MANY plays that didn’t cost nearly as much as cats and it was by far the WORST play ever. As a trained dancer myself, the dancing was not in sync what so ever, lacked energy and quality. The same dancer sequences were preformed numerous times. I fought to stay awake the whole show and was so disappointed in the amount of money we spent for this horrible performance. Even though the the story line isn’t amazing, you could not hear a single word or sentence the cast was signing. Absolute worst show would not recommend seeing what so ever!!!!!
Disappointed from Toronto, Ontario
BORING, REPETITIVE, NO PLOT OR STORY LINE, HIGHLY OVERRATED
I see a lot of theatre and I rarely think about abandoning ship at intermission, but that's what I kept thinking. It was painful to sit through this 2.5 hour play. It felt like a disconnect between the audience and what was happening on stage. First half of the play had unmemorable music, seemed disjointed, no plot and no character development. Second half things picked up, but it was repetitive. The song Memory was probably the saving grace, but it comes out of the blue and in the absence of a storyline, it's just a song where you can't really connect it with anything. The song or versions of it also repeat a few times, which makes the play repetitive. I'm surprised this play has been around this long. They had opportunities to make it a lot better than it is. Disappointing for me and my guests. Also for those who pay attention, there's a derogatory line in one of the songs that is off putting.

ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE :(
Knowing my friend also had tickets days after, I honestly felt bad for them. It was painful to make it to the first intermission so we could leave. No plot, no live music.... just some actors dressed up as cats dancing around singing terrible songs. I was completed shocked and in wonder how this show has been playing for so long.

STORY IS POORLY TOLD AND DISJOINTED.
Watched the show in Dec 2019 in Toronto. The story is poorly told and the scenes are awkwardly stitched together. The cast was talented enough and I could appreciate the singing and dancing but have a hard time recommending this show.

I expected this performance to be amazing, I was so excited. Sadly , it was so boring , could not understand the story line, repetitive songs, costumes on some looked more like mice than cats, scene was the same throughout the whole performance . The group of four I was with all agreed the performance was terrible, don’t waste your time or money
