Expect the unexpected. CATS is back in full swing. After a far too long break due to the COVID 19 pandemic situation, Christian Struppeck is happy to reopen the theatre for its audience. CATS, a record-breaking show in a record-breaking run in Vienna. After all these months without a live performance, without a show, there are no words for this indescribable feeling when you are allowed back in the auditorium. Alexander Aulers's (Munkustrap) first lines of the show filled the room (where it happened) with what we all have missed, theatre magic. Christian Struppeck mentioned in his Pre-show Welcome back speech, that we all streamed concerts, watched shows online but now it's time to get back to what the theatre is all about a live performance.

All through lockdown, many French musical theater performers have been lucky enough to be able to go on developing their craft, tapping their troubles away with master teacher Victor Cuno, who in turn took the opportunity to use their talents to create a new show, simply called Victor Cuno's Broadway Cabaret, showcasing many triple threats who took advantage of their time off from theater commitments to rehearse at Swing Tap Studio near Bastille in Paris. Beginning with a showstopping new version of 'Anything Goes', musical arrangement and choreography by Cuno himself. A delightful special event for the Maison de la Radio's '42ème rue fait son show' was performed last December, and Cuno decided to expand this success into a full show.
