Cats Returns To London

That's right theatre fans. One of the world's longest running shows of all time is back where it first opened over thirty-four years ago. Cats, which is based on Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot, opened at the London Palladium in December 2014 for a limited run of twelve weeks. Yet here we are some seven months later, and the show is still playing to packed houses eight times a week. Now my first memory of the show was hearing the song "Memory" in middle school.

Cats TicketsLike how I tied those two together? Cut to some ten years later and I moved to New York to be an actor. Care to guess what I saw shortly after moving here? That's right? It was Cats. Now I know what you're thinking. Did the show live up to my expectations? You bet it did.

In fact I can't wait until this latest production comes to Broadway. Oh come on. You know it's going to come here eventually. So what is Cats about? Well besides the obvious that is. Anyway here is a synopsis about the show to give you a little more info. Enjoy!

Song and dance based loosely on the T.S.Elliot poems Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. The plot is that all the cats are gathering for the Jellicle Ball at which one will be bestowed with an extra life. All the performers are cats in a outsize alley which takes over the whole auditorium.

The show has a loose story but is essentially a series of pieces about the individual cats, their personalities and their lives. During the interval there is a chance for younger members of the audience to meet a cat and get an autograph. Time Out called it the dancing moggie show.

Let me guess. You're dying to see it now aren't you? I knew you would be. So how do you get tickets? Well I guess you could wait until you get over to London, and hope that tickets are still available. Or you could just give us a call, and let one of our friendly ticket experts at Applause get them for you. It's as simple as that. Get your tickets to see Cats in London at the London Palladium.
