CATS

Grand Opera House, York

Pick Me Up Theatre bring Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s hugely popular Cats to York’s Grand Opera House in a production directed and choreographed by Ali Kirkham.

 

Based on Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot, the musical tells the stories of the Jellicle Cats who come out to play on one special night of the year – the night of the Jellicle Ball.

 

One by one we meet a cast of fabulous felines including Rum Tum Tugger, Macavity, Grizabella, Mr Mistoffelees, Old Deuteronemy and Skimbleshanks.

 

It’s one of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history – the original production played at the New London Theatre for 21 years.

 

The score includes the show-stopping Memory, which was a big hit for Barbra Streisand, as well as Elaine Paige, who played Grizabella in the original West End production.
