TWO SHOWS ADDED – at the ND. But, wait: Acro … cats? Yes, because Samantha Martin guides – and more often than not succeeds in guiding – her team of trained felines as they perform a variety of feats – pole-climbing, rope-walking, cart-pushing, ball-balancing, jumping through hoops, even getting their rock show on. You like cats, you'll probably love this traveling spectacle of Behaviorism + Kawaii. Bonus: A chicken, a groundhog, and two rats. Sun.-Mon., Nov. 25-26, 8pm. $18
