The beloved musical, Cats, is back on the prowl. One of the longest Broadway shows is performing and EventTicketDepot has the tickets. The musical originally opened in London's West End in 1981 to rave reviews and positive audience acceptance. It was the longest running musical at twenty-one years, until 2006 when Les Miserables broke its record. A year after opening in London, Cats moved to Broadway, where it, too, was the longest running musical at eighteen years. This was again until 2006 when Phantom of the Opera surpassed it. Cats has been translated into over twenty different languages and produced in several countries including Japan, France, Mexico, Russia, South Korea, and Italy.
Cats has a loose plot in two acts that takes place in a junkyard at the Jellice ball. This occurs once a year. All the felines come together in their leotards and makeup and all are compelled to dance under the full moon. The patriarch of the cat tribe, Old Deuteronomy, must choose a new cat at this time to be reborn into Heaviside Layer. Join characters Munkustrap, Demeter, Rum Tum Tugger, Grizabella, Bombalurina, and Skimbelshanks as they dance, sing, and scurry across the stage.
Producer Andrew Lloyd Webber took the idea for this musical from T.S. Elliot's book of poems, Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. The lyrics are the lines from the poems set to music composed by Webber, with the exception of the hit song, Memories. Webber is an Academy Award, Grammy, Golden Globe, and Tony Winner that has produced the plays Evita, Phantom of the Opera, and Jesus Christ Superstar. Cats has won awards and nomination including best musical, costume, and original scored from the Tony Awards.
Cats is filled with song, dance, sadness, and fulfillment. EventTicketDepot has the best seats for this famous popular Broadway hit.
