This fall the Perelman Performing Arts Center (PAC NYC) opens its doors, long envisioned as a major cultural institution and rebuilding keystone of the World Trade Center. The opening season’s programs reflect the dynamic energy of New York. Ahead of the new production of Cats, premiering in summer 2024, members of the creative team, including Omari Wiles, join us for a special in-process first look of the show to discuss their artistic process, and excerpts are performed.
Cats, a PAC NYC production, is the fabulous reimagining of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic dance musical based on T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. Inspired by the Ballroom culture that roared out of New York City over 50 years ago and still rages on runways around the world, the production is staged and directed as a spectacularly immersive competition by Zhailon Levingston (Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, Chicken & Biscuits) and PAC NYC Artistic Director Bill Rauch (All the Way). With all new Ballroom and club beats, runway-ready choreography, and an edgy eleganza makeover, this Jellicle ball trades feline for fierce.
By arrangement with The Really Useful Group.
