Record-Breaking Musical: CATS
Don’t miss CATS, one of the greatest and most adored musicals the world has ever known.
The smash-hit musical features a magnificent musical score composed by the legendary Andrew Lloyd-Webber that includes the poignant hit song Memory, which has been recorded by over 150 artists – from Barbra Streisand and Johnny Mathis to Liberace and Barry Manilow.
Adapted from T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, the musical tells the imaginative tale of a tribe of Jellicle Cats as they gather together for the annual Jellicle Ball.
The show is set amongst a larger-than-life junkyard playground which is alive with feline characters such as Rum Tum Tugger, Mr. Mistoffelees, Macavity, Jennyanydots, Old Deuteronomy, Grizabella and Skimbleshanks. One by one, the feline characters tell their stories for the amusement of Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, who must choose one of them to ascend to The Heaviside Layer to be reborn into a new Jellicle life.
CATS first opened in London in May 1981 to rave reviews and went on to win a record-breaking number of awards internationally including two Olivier Awards for “Musical of the Year” and “Outstanding Achievement of the Year in Musicals”, and seven Tony Awards.
Since its world premiere, CATS has been presented in over 30 countries, translated into 15 languages and seen by more than 81 million people worldwide. Both the original London and Broadway cast recordings won Grammy Awards for Best Cast Album.
