I visited the Abrons Arts Center last week and got a chance to watch a tech rehearsal of OneOfUs production of “Dick Rivington & The Cat“. Always interested in hearing from the performers themselved about the show I was delighted to interview ‘Tommy the Cat’ actor Tyler West. The video is posted below. Make sure you get a ticket for this show! You have never seen anything quite as funny and delightful!
“DICK RIVINGTON & HIS CAT” PROMISES TO HAVE GREAT MUSIC, SLAPSTICK, AN UNDERWATER MERMAID EXTRAVAGANZA, AN EPIC 80S DANCE BATTLE, COMMUNITY STRENGTHENING MESSAGES, AND THE SHEER JOY OF SILLY FUN AND….PIZZA RAT!
This holiday season, it’s time to experience “Dick Rivington & His Cat” the new, radical, joyful, uproarious family spectacle that will lift your spirits and give you hope for the year to come. From the team that brought you the wildly successful JACK & THE BEANSTALK (2017 & 2018) here’s “Dick Rivington & His Cat” which celebrates the resilience, open-mindedness and beauty of the Lower East Side in a rags to riches story of a young immigrant & his feline friend who must overcome enormous hardships to make their dreams come true.
A stranger from a far away land, Dick & his cat Tommy arrive in New York City with nothing except a good attitude and the clothes on their back. Dick finds work, a home, and friendship in the LES, before being framed by the Evil Rat King and run out of town in disgrace. To clear his name, Dick must endure a coming of age adventure and with the help of Tommy The Cat liberates a neighboring town suffering from a corrupt rat infestation. A hero Dick returns home, finds love and gets elected mayor.
