After an exciting revival on Broadway in 2016, the first since its marathon 18-year run, the Cats is finally heading out on tour, bringing the feline frolics to a town near you! Full of musical theatre classics (Memory, MaCavity, The Rum Tum Tugger to name a few), spectacular and instantly recognizable costumes, and dance numbers and bursting with cat-itude, this iconic show is purrfect for newcomers and old-timers.
When SoCal sorority princess Elle Woods is dumped by her elite beau Warner because he does not deem her serious enough to marry, the pink-loving socialite enrols at his chosen university Harvard to study law in an attempt to win him back. Its clear that the fun-loving blonde is very different from the east coast students she calls classmates, but even their tittering and vitriol is not enough to derail her. On her quest for acceptance from others, she finds she has the smarts and courage of conviction to accept herself.
This uproarious, fast-paced farce follows the mixed fortunes of failed musician Francis Henshall. The plot is simple. Down on his luck and perpetually hungry, Francis suddenly finds himself employed by two bosses. One is disguised as her recently deceased infamous gangster brother while trying to extort money from her dead brother's fiancee's dad. The other is her boyfriend, who killed her brother and is hiding from the police until they can be reunited. Simple, right? Richard Bean adapts Goldoni's 1753 commedia A Servant of Two Masters and turns it into a hysterical British sex comedy set in the swinging sixties in Brighton, England. The Philadelphia premiere of this award-winning adaptation will star Quintessence and 1812 favorite Sean Close.
