Would recommend coming to see Cats if you are a Broadway fan. It's a classic that we know will not be around forever, but help yourself out at the same time and try it under the ballot/ Broadway lottery first (cheaper!) before you just go all out. I did that and scored front row tickets for $40! Best way to cure a hangover was listening to Memory!

You can sense Lloyd Weber's hand from top o bottom, the play is a bit long with a nice intermission, there is a nice bar and a few stuff to nibble but enough for a theater (you don't go to this places to eat right?). The customs and the theater display were amazing and by the way if you have cats at home this don't behave like that at all

I would recommend if you haven’t seen Cats you should. I would love to see it again! The performers interacted with the audience which made it really cool.
