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.

Boring show with awkwardly put together scenes.

1.0 star rating Lisa H from Toronto, Ontario


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

1.0 star rating Kathy S from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


After spending $135 for a ticket I thought this was the worst performance I have even seen at the Benedum, the orchestra did not even play and you could not understand anything they were singing. The costumes were beautiful and the dancing was okay but there was no plot that we could figure out. We actually left at intermission which I have never done and there were others doing the same and sharing our sentiments. These tickets were a Christmas gift, I am so bummed the show was not at all what we expected.

1.0 star rating D. from Ottawa, Ontario


No story, horrible repetitive cat/head moves, could sometime not hear the lyrics/words, one of them should be in porn instead of a musical, the lead signer has an amazing voice I can give her that much but cannot act, costumes are awful and I really didn’t want a grown man dressed like a cat purring in my ear in the isle beside me...not what I was expecting at all but to each their own, I respect the opinion and taste of others, just sharing my view of the try and make the best of a nice evening out though.
