About the show

Everyone’s favorite cat lady has got her claws out when it comes to describing her extensive showbiz history during this story and song-filled musical comedy. More…

Mrs. Smith is a woman on the verge of a cat-based breakdown — in search of her missing cat, Carlyle. To overcome the grief and rage of this “personal apocalypse,” she’s tried psychoanalysis, New Age therapies and, now, mounting a Broadway-style musical spectacular where her bizarre life story is re-enacted in delirious song and dance. With the aid of her dapper Broadway Boys, Mrs. Smith puts her spin on the perilous highs and lows of fame, fortune and superstardom.

Clever, Campy, Creative, Hilarious, Great singing

It’s more polished and elaborate than karaoke but not quite cabaret and not quite a play. Drag is feeling a litt...

"It’s amazing what you can do with a little imagination and a lot of cardboard...It brings back the glory days of shoestring camp entertainment for all...This kind of show doesn’t need to make sense, especially if you have a cocktail or five before seeing it — the liquid courage may also help wit...

"if it is to appeal to a wider audience, Mrs. Smith's mad little soirée needs less of everything. The 'Cat-Tacular' is too frantic, too hard-sell...The only element of which there is no surfeit is genuine wit...The basic concepts aren't yet funny enough; better writing is wanted, along with more ...

"Her impassioned narrative veers toward the inane, but so be it. Our motor-mouthed diva's brittle asides and batty digressions also provide amusing occasions for some audience-friendly participation. But it is Hanbury's patently deft and also partly daffy renditions of classic show tunes that are...
