Street Theatre Company brings Nashville the hit musical Cats as the first of its two 2013 "In Concert" productions. Running on Broadway for an astounding eighteen years and winning a Tony for 'Best Musical', Cats tells the story of a tribe of cats called the Jellicles and the night they decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life.
STC's production features all of the beloved songs including "Memory", "Macavity", and "The Rum Tum Tugger" in an In Concert style performance which has become one of STC's most popular innovations.
