Cats: "The Jellicle Ball" is a radical reimagining of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic dance musical based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. Inspired by the Ballroom culture that roared out of New York City over 50 years ago and still rages on runways around the world. Staged as a spectacularly immersive competition by Zhailon Levingston (Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, Chicken & Biscuits) and PAC NYC Artistic Director Bill Rauch (All the Way), with all new Ballroom and club beats, runway ready choreography, and an edgy eleganza makeover that moves the action from junkyard to runway.  Come one, come all, and celebrate the joyous transformation of self at the heart of Cats and Ballroom culture itself.

See it if into reworking a beloved but problematic classic, mixing it with queer Ballroom extravaganza, thus adding context and edge.

Don’t see it if well... very Drag-Race, in-your-face, and the audience is expected to be rowdy (no problem)!

Refreshing, Resonant, Great staging, Ambitious, Clever

See it if you want to see Cats performed in a way that actually gives the show a plot

Don’t see it if you don't like innovative unique takes on shows or don't enjoy ballroom culture

Entertaining, Clever, Great staging, Unhinged, Pure joy

See it if You want to forget everything about why you hate “Cats”. This queer reimagining is as bizarre as the original show, but the pairing works!

Don’t see it if At the end of the day it is still “Cats”, but it is the most brilliant version of “Cats” you’ll ever see.

The most fun on broadway

See it if you want to see a fun show that is actually substantive or you like Cats. If you like great dancing especially ballroom.

Don’t see it if you are an ALW purist — however, if you dont like Cats you may be won over by this.
