Photo Flash: First Look at Heidi Kettenring, Matthew R. Jones and More in Marriott Theatre's CATS

The Marriott Theatre presents one of the biggest blockbuster musical hits of our time, Andrew Lloyd Webber's CATS. Based on the poems of T.S. Eliot, CATS is currently in previews and opens April 2, running through May 25 at 10 Marriott Drive, Lincolnshire, IL. CATS is directed and choreographed by multiple Jeff Award-winner Marc Robin with musical direction by Ryan T. Nelson. Below, BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action!

Since premiering in London in 1981, CATS went on to become the longest running musical in the history of British theatre and the longest running musical on Broadway. In 2003, the Marriott Theatre presented a new production of CATS, directed and choreographed by Marc Robin, which quickly became the best-selling show in the theatre's long history. One of the audience's most requested encores, the Marriott Theatre presents a whimsical, environmental production in which our intimate surroundings bring you closer than ever to the "The Jellicle Ball."

CATS stars Heidi Kettenring as "Grizabella" (National Tour of Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Broadway in Chicago's Wicked, the World Premiere of Hero at the Marriott Theatre) and Matthew R. Jones as "Old Deuteronomy" (Broadway's Titanic and Phantom of the Opera); with William Carlos Angulo, Brian Bohr, Ellen Green, Shanna Heverly, Raymond Interior, Patrick Keefe, Jake Klinkhammer, Tammy Mader, Luke Manley, Christine Mild, Johanna McKenzie Miller, Alexandra Palkovic, Sagiya Eugene Peabody, Andy Planck, Liam Quealy, Buddy Reeder, Sam Rogers, Laura Savage, Summer Naomi Smart, Adrienne Storrs, Amanda Tanguay, J. Tyler Whitmer, George Andrew Wolff, and Melissa Zaremba.

The CATS production team is led by the Marriott Theatre's Lead Artistic Director Andy Hite. Set Design is by Tom Ryan, Costume Design by Nancy Missimi, Lighting Design by Jesse Klug, Sound Design by Bob Gilmartin and Properties Design by Sally Weiss. The Marriott Theatre orchestra is conducted by Musical Supervisor Patti Garwood.
