Tuesday To-Do: 'Cats'

‘CATS'
7:30 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $18-$49

Likely Andrew Lloyd Weber's most famous musical, and his second longest running (trumped by “Phantom of the Opera”), it is also probably T.S. Eliot's most lucrative achievement. The musical, cribbed from Eliot's “Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats” is a surprisingly impressionistic tale of a tribe of magical, heavily made up nighthawks (er, cats), vying for the eternal, mythical “ninth life.” If “Cats” fans are any indication, this is to miss the point. Some of Weber's most audacious choreography and costuming are in “Cats,” along with some of his biggest, saddest songs, including “Memory,” which will outlast us all. Now that “Cats” has closed on Broadway, its two nights in Little Rock will be one of few opportunities for kids to learn what exactly David Letterman was making fun of.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
