The first of the megamusicals, CATS pounces on Purdue 42 years after first thrilling Broadway audiences with the triple threat of beautiful songs, athletic choreography, and furry leg warmers. You may have fuzzy “Memories” of first seeing CATS on vacation in New York or in one of the 30-plus countries or 15 different languages in which the show has been staged. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s blockbuster tells the story of one magical night when an extraordinary tribe of cats gathers for its annual ball to rejoice and decide which cat will be reborn. CATS is a timeless feast for the ears and eyes, guided by strong characters, who share stories about their nine lives based on T.S. Elliott poems. The revised staging makes this a production for a new generation!
