The theater was very cool with beautiful cat-related details (cat-shaped door handles; cat designs in the stone flooring; cat designs in wood on the walls; cats in stained glass; cat statues outside; cats in...

This show lasts 90 minutes including interval. The cats have been found on the streets so they say and the show is enjoyable for anyone under 8. With clowns, jugglers and of course cats and dogs it will keep the young ones amused. About 15 minutes walk from the metro so I recommend a taxi to take you there unless... More

My fascination with Russian culture has led me to explore many things that I would not consider otherwise back home. The Cat's Theatre is somewhat of a historical landmark for children's entertainment and 'She' was more than happy enough to take me along to experience it considering that she saw it herself many years ago. The theatre is easy enough... More

If you're on an extended trip to Moscow with kids, they will enjoy the show. The show is more of a pantomime with cats performing tricks throughout the performance. There's minimal speaking parts in the show so you don't need to worry about a language barrier. While each of my 3 children (aged 3, 7 & 8) really enjoyed the... More

Everything you expect from a show called cat circus. The performers were extremely good as were the felines. Good laugh to begin a night out!

Great family entertainment, took my daughter of 3 years and she loved it, I have to say the adults loved it also. Can't understand the last review but everyone has their opinion. Staff very friendly and the theatre top quality. Well worth the money and will go back for sure. I am not a cat lover either but was really... More

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY seeing this cat theater boring beyond belief show. We just went to the stupidest "show" in the world (and definitely in Moscow) where no one laughed and the cats do not do anything other than sit on stoops and jump on people's shoulders, things that normal cats do in people's homes. The clown... More

The Cat Theatre of Kuklachev troupe, which is well received all over the world, is deeply involved in the world of cats, and has a cat corner, games and of course the main attraction – the show!Though using animals onstage raises ethical questions, the shows are well directed with highly professional smiling clowns and artists. It is not an amateur... More

The theatre is very easy to get to, and you can buy ticks on the day. It worth getting there at least half an hour before the show starts, as there is cat memorabilia upstairs and also you can view some of the cats and kittens. The theatrics of the performers is also excellent and the story is easily followed.
