Cats
Show poster 
 

One of Broadway's previously longest running and most popular musicals makes a special return to New York for a limited engagement at the Neil Simon Theatre. Ideal for the whole family, Cats is based on poet TS Eliot's 1939 book for older children, Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. With spectacular costumes, dazzling dance moves, and some of the most memorable show tunes in musical theatre ('Memory', 'MaCavity', 'The Song of the Jellicles', just to name a few!), Cats will leave you in awe. And possibly suspicious of any cats you may pass on the way home after...

Once a year, a local tribe of street cats, all with their own distinct names and personalities, come together for the legendary "Jellicle Ball". Here they entertain each other, tell stories, and listen to wisdom given by their elderly and respected leader, Old Deuteronomy.

Halfway through, their gathering is interrupted by the tattered and torn Grizabella. Repulsed by her sorry state, the Jellicle Cats shun her and chase her off, despite the pleas of Old Deuteronomy to show compassion. But what happens when their beloved leader is catnapped by the dastardly master-cat of crime, MacAvity (think a feline version of Moriarty!)? Will the Jellicle cats be able to save him? And WHO is the mysterious Mr. Mistoffelees?
