Dancing Cats

Dancing Cats

Cats is a sung-through musical composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, based upon the Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot. Cats was a hit musical that ran for many years on Broadway and in theaters all over the world. It featured incredible music and choreography, and its unique setting and characters captured the hearts of audiences everywhere.

The musical was set in a junkyard where a group of cats, known as the Jellicle cats, would come together every year to celebrate and compete for a chance to be reborn into a new life. The cats sang and danced their way through the night, showcasing their unique personalities and abilities.

The main character was a cat named Grizabella, who had been shunned by the other cats for many years. She was once a beautiful cat but had fallen on hard times and had lost her looks and charm. Throughout the musical, Grizabella yearned to be accepted by the other cats, but they would have none of it.

As the night went on, the cats performed various musical numbers, each one showcasing a different cat’s personality and talents. The most memorable song was “Memory,” sung by Grizabella, where she reminisced about her past life and longed for a better future.

In the end, the Jellicle leader, Old Deuteronomy, chose Grizabella to be reborn into a new life, giving her a chance to start fresh and be accepted by the other cats. The musical ended with the iconic song, “The Ad-dressing of Cats,” where the cats explained how to properly address a cat and bid the audience farewell.
