Career girl Alice Van Guilder is not content to settle down and get married like the rest of the nice young ladies, so she decides to become a burglar instead - preying on the very upper-crust society she's rebelling against. Pursued by a nebbish detective, Alice - also known as The Cat! - finds herself enjoying the pursuit a little too much.
Drat! The Cat! opened on Broadway on October 10, 1965 at the Martin Beck Theatre and only ran for 8 performances, leaving behind a great score including the popular hit "She Touched Me".

The Closing Notice Series is a set of "living cast album" presentations focusing on classic musicals that were either dubbed a "flop", had short commercial runs, or most likely will never be revived again. Opening Doors respectfully presents these scores with the understanding that - unsuccessful or not - the creators poured their craft, guts and love into the work and they deserve to be heard once again - live on stage. The focus is on the score with a truncated book. The Closing Notice Series began in December 2006 with the critically-acclaimed presentation of Bring Back Birdie (2007 MAC Award nomination - Outstanding Variety Production/Recurring Series) and has produced revivals of It's A Bird...It's a Plane...It's Superman!, Whoop-Up!, Flora the Red Menace, The Best Little Whorehouse Goes Public, Goldilocks, Fade Out-Fade In, I Love My Wife, Subways are for Sleeping and Is There Life After High School?. Opening Doors Theatre Company was honored with the 2009 Bistro Award for Outstanding Series, and 2007 and 2009 MAC Award nominations for Outstanding Variety Production/Recurring Series.
