An amazing show. Especially all the dancing. It was only my wife and I - but we will take the kids to see it. We were lucky to win the digital lottery - excellent seats (4th row in the mezzanine) for 40$ each.

I was given these tickets as a gift. The show was nice. The music and dancing was great. There wasn't much of a plot, but it was fun.

I've wanted to see CATS on Broadway since the original show. Honestly, I was afraid it wouldn't live up to my expectations, but it did. The Neil Simon theater is small but has very comfortable seats. I can't imagine there are many bad seats unless someone very tall sat in front of you. We were in Orchestra center on the aisle, and could see everything with no problem. The cast is top notch as is the makeup, costumes, and music. I think this is a show more for adults than children because I'm not sure they would really understand the story line. We arrived about an hour in advance, and already had our tickets which I would recommend. The line gets VERY long before they let you in. Also, it's worth noting if you've been out shopping that your bags will be checked. No food is allowed except from the M&M store in Times Square is what we were told. Drinks/snacks, bathrooms, and merchandise are downstairs. It's fairly pricey as you would expect, but they do have a collectible CATS cup with your choice of beverage for $7.00. Had a wonderful time and highly recommend.

We had first row tickets so the action was very close. The quality of the dancing, music, singing was wonderful. We saw 3 Broadway shows over our trip and while they were all great Cats was the most memorable.

Into the third song, my 11-year old leaned over and asked: Where is the story line? At the end, she liked the show, but just. She thought it did not match up to other shows we had seen, such as Aladdin or Circus Soleil. The very professional trailer on YouTube suggests many well-known songs, but in the end I just recognized one. Sure, it was good dancing, singing, lights, but at a time where any musical on Broadway is outstanding in its production quality and dazzling, this is a tired show, maybe of historical interest. And: don't ever try to take a teenager there!
