Mad Cat Theatre Company

Miami, FL 33138
Best Of
Under actor, director and writer Paul Tei, Mad Cat Theatre is just what it sounds like: MAD. Brilliantly mad. Their lineup includes original works, adaptations, multi-media, live music, dance, puppetry and poetry ranging from funny to dark, but always thought-provoking and insightful. Basically, anything and everything goes. This Miami Shores company isn't afraid to test their limits - or those of their audience.
