Cats The Musical

Cats have been around forever, in Broadway years. It opened in London’s West End on May 11, 1981, and on Broadway in 1982. It closed on Broadway in 2000 and was revived there last year.
In the revival of this Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, Leona Lewis plays Grizabella, the Glamour Cat. Interestingly, “Grizabella” does not appear in the source material, T.S. Eliot’s “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats,” though she may be a feline version of a woman described in another Eliot work, “Rhapsody on a Windy Night.”
The lyrics of the signature song from this show, “Memory,” were written by Trevor Nunn for Webber’s music.
Whether or not one is an admirer of the titular quadrupeds, this re-born show is worth a look.
