CATS To Speak Italian, Set For Compagnia della Rancia 2009/2010 Season

The new enthralling show by Compagnia della Rancia - leader for musical theatre productions in Italy - is CATS, the most famous musical of all time. The show, announced as a leading event in 2009/2010 season, will be translated into Italian for the first time, as it has already happened for over 10 other languages.

"We are really proud - said in a statement Saverio Marconi, director and point of reference of Italian musical - that The Really Useful Group, generally careful with the license of his musicals, after a six-year negotiationhas preferred Compagnia della Rancia for a masterpiece like CATS.

Thanks to the translation, Italian audiencewill have the opportunity to understand the stories of these special cats, feel their emotions and, as Eliot said, remember that "a cat is not a dog."
