'Cats' on the prowl in St. Louis

Thursday, November 27, 2008

ST. LOUIS — The holidays are a time when families come together; for a cultural experience with yours, head to St. Louis to see "Cats" at the Fox Theatre.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's emphatically popular musical has crawled off Broadway to wander around the country. To drive home the notion that this is truly a family feature, the Fox Theatre is offering face painting to children at the show.

The story is based on a book by Missouri's own T.S. Eliot. It was a collection of poems he sent to his grandchildren detailing the mischievous world of a tribe of cats.

"Cats" was one of the longest-running shows on Broadway and garnered seven Tony Awards. The famous production will be at Fox Theatre at 1 and 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $61 to $22 and available at www.fabulousfox.com.
