“It’s been 28 years since the original Canadian production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s show about feline follies first exploded onto the Toronto scene at the Elgin theatre, starting our city’s love affair with the mega-musical.”

“It’s not your parents’ Cats — and, frankly, that’s the point.”
John Coulbourn | Toronto Sun, June 14 2013

“The feisty version of Cats that co-producer Smith unleashed on Tuesday isn’t playing at the majestic Elgin Theatre this time, but the 700-seat Panasonic. In other words, the original mega-musical is no longer mega. And that’s a good thing.”
Martin Morrow | The Globe and Mail, Jun 12 2013

“The all-Canadian cast gives fresh and confident performances.”
Brianne Hogan | Post City, June 13 2013

“…lots of fun all the way through.”
Jeff Cottril | Digital Journal, June 12 2013

“CATS, the show that revolutionized musical theatre around the world is making its triumphant return to Toronto. Producers today announced the complete all-Canadian cast for this all-new production that begins performances May 28 at Toronto’s Panasonic Theatre. ”
