Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-breaking musical Cats returns to the West End for a strictly limited 12 week run at the London Palladium beginning 6th December 2014.
Adapted from TS Eliot’s ‘Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats’, with an amazing musical score that includes the timeless “Memory”, spectacular set designs, stunning costumes and breathtaking choreography, CATS is a magical musical like no other.
On just one special night of the year, all Jellicle cats meet at the Jellicle Ball where Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, makes the Jellicle choice and announces which of them will go up to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.
One of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history, CATS has been seen by over 50 million people and enchanted audiences in over 300 cities around the world – now you too have the chance to experience this legendary musical phenomenon.
CATS is directed by Trevor Nunn, with Gillian Lynne as Associate Director and Choreographer and designs by John Napier. Book is by T. S. Eliot with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Chrissie Cartwright, long term Associate Director of Cats, will work with Trevor Nunn and Gillian Lynne in re-directing the production for the London Palladium.
CATS was originally produced by Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group Limited.
