BWW Reviews: Paramount's CATS Offers High-Quality EntertainmentBWW Reviews: Paramount's CATS Offers High-Quality Entertainment
by Elee Schrock - Sep 16, 2014

BroadwayWorld reviews Paramount Theatre's 'Cats.' The felines prowling the stage at Aurora's Paramount Theatre have truly been given the five-star treatment. On a perfectly polished (and monstrous) set by Kevin Depinet (along with projections by Michael Stanfill), they are given plenty of room to jump, climb, and play. They are donned in those iconic (expertly designed by Theresa Ham, with wigs and make-up by Katie Cordts and Lauren Cecil) leotards and furry hats. And, most impressive, they have been lit in brilliant colors by lighting extraordinaire, Jesse Klug. The aesthetic appeal on the Paramount stage is top-notch and one of the main reasons this production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Cats' is as fully satisfying as this musical gets. (more...)
