Moscow Cats Return

April 05, 2007

The world's only Moscow Cats Theatre returns to Los Angeles for eight performances, April 14-15 and May 5-6, at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre, 4401 W. 8th St., Los Angeles.

This family hit from Russia, the only entertainment of its kind in the world, features non-stop action by a group of 30 talented felines performing original and astounding acrobatic feats in a wordless, colorful and fun-filled family show. The show supports the work of the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).

The cast also includes two dogs and six clowns (human), performed by Yuri Kuklachev, Yelena Kuklacheva, Inga Gerasimova, Alexander Gerasimov, Lioudmila Smirnova, and Vasili Zhuravlev.

Kuklachev's successful debut on the Moscow circus arena immediately brought him into prominence. The audience burst into laughter when he came out into the arena with a cat on his shoulder.

His number disproved a widespread opinion that cats couldn't be trained. And today Kuklachev is one of Russia's favorite and brightest clowns and animal trainers. Thirteen years ago Kuklachev decided to set up a cats theatre in Moscow. The Cat's House troupe now numbers over 100 mewing actors of nearly all existing breeds.

Once Kuklachev picked up cats in the streets, but now he breeds them. He agrees, however, that one cannot train cats, but says it's possible to find common language with them and then teach them something.

Performances are at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. all four dates. Tickets range from $49.90 to $57.90 and can be bought through Ticketmaster at 213-365-3500 or at all Ticketmaster outlets or on line at www.ticketmaster.com For more information visit www.moscowcatstheatre.com
