Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical is based on the Nobel prize winning TS Elliot’s world famous and beloved poetry collection “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats” from 1939. It premiered in London’s West End on May 11, 1981. It was an immediate success and was highly acclaimed both by an enthusiastic group of critics and by the audience. Soon CATS had won more awards than any other musical – including 7 Tony Awards on Broadway. The music is composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and is probably most famous for the song “Memory” which was a massive hit.
