Review: CATS at Ronacher Theater Wien

Jellicles can and Jellicles do

Review: CATS at Ronacher Theater Wien JELLICLES CAN AND JELLICLES DO!

The record-breaking Musical is back after its summer break for another season. An invitation to the Jellicle Ball you can't refuse. It is a joy to watch this talented cast, even the understudies are first cast material, like Jo Lucy Rackham (U/S Rumpelteazer) or the fabulous Lucius Wolter as Old Deuteronomy.

After all these years, the Jellicle Cats are selling tickets like crazy. What makes the show so special, what makes CATS in Vienna so special? Why is everybody interested in an invitation to the Jellicle Ball?

My 9-year-old companion got the task to observe the show and deliver me a headline afterward. "CATS in Vienna is phenomenal, full of energy, and something for the whole family." She got the job done and she was right.

After reopenings, neverending Lock Downs, and a summer break, we got to witness a powerful and vivid Jellicle Ball.

Yes, Jellicles can and Jellicles do.

What did our critic think of HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH at DAS VINDOBONA? The Glam-Rock Musical Sensation with Music and Lyrics by Stephen Trask and a Book by John Cameron Mitchell is back in Austria for a limited run at the Vindobona. What a way to start the year. After Hedwig's first appearance in 2006, starring Andreas Bieber in the Leading Role and Anke Fielder as Yitzhak and the highly acclaimed production at the Landestheater Linz with Riccardo Greco in Heels and Ariana Schirasi-Fard as his Backup-Singer it's Drew Sarich together with his wife Ann Mandrella, to tell the story of Hansel Schmidt and his Angry Inch.

Let's call it a year. Recovering from the pandemic episode, home alone, only connected via Video Calls, (more or less) entertained by living room concerts instead of spending a night out at the theatre, we got the opportunity to enjoy various shows over Austria and Germany. We returned to the theatre, enjoying the atmosphere, the smell, and everything a night out offers.
