What did our critic think of CATS at Susquehanna Stage? What a fantastic night at Susquehanna Stage. While 'Cats' might not be everyone's favorite Broadway show, due to its limited plot and almost music review format, there is no denying that the energy of this cast, the creativity of the choreography, the amazing costuming, and live orchestra made this production of 'Cats' outstanding.

Attempting to produce a show adapted into an award-winning film is challenging. With audience members continually comparing the performance to highly acclaimed actors, it takes a brave director and a confident cast to pull off Steel Magnolias. Jack Hartmann (director) should be applauded for rising to the challenge and creating a wonderful night at The Belmont Theatre's interactive black box environment.
