The show, which includes twenty-six cats, two dogs and six clowns, will reopen at the Lamb’s on Feb. 2. Created three decades ago by circus performer Yuri Kuklachev, Moscow Cats Theatre features "non-stop action by a troop of talented felines performing original and astounding acrobatic feats, integrated into a non verbal, colorful and fun-filled family show."
"The cats are the stars of this show," Kuklachev said in a recent statement. "They walk tightropes, balance balls on their noses, do paw-stands, jump from great heights, and unerringly negotiate complex mazes. We glorify them and that’s why we provide the cats with a traveling entourage including a vet, kitty caretakers and personal stylists to tend to the needs of our feline superstars.”
The company features Yuri Kuklachev, Yelena Kuklacheva, Inga Gerasimova, Lioudmila Smirnova, Alexander Gerasimov and Eugeny Lazarev.
Moscow Cats Theatre will play Wednesdays-Saturdays at 8 PM, with matinees on Saturdays at 2 and 5 PM and Sundays at 3 PM. Tickets, priced $45-$65, are available by calling (212) 239-6200.
The Lamb's Theatre is located in Manhattan at 130 West 44th Street. For further information visit www.moscowcatstheatre.com.
