Wednesday 5/12

We find it hard to believe that there is a living soul on Earth who has not seen the musical Cats. On what evidence do we form such an assumption? Well, the show based on T.S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats and featuring mostly forgettable music (except for that one song "Memory") by Andrew Lloyd Webber debuted in London in 1981, ran on Broadway for eighteen years, and is still going strong on the road. And yes, yet another traveling production of Cats opened last night at the Jackie Gleason Theater of the Performing Arts (1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach) and will be coughing up hairballs through Sunday, May 16. The incredible catlike longevity leaves us with an appalling thought: Maybe there are people out there who like seeing the musical again and again? Tickets range from $17 to $57. Call 305-673-7300.
