A reviews round-up for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s CATS at the London Palladium
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hugely successful and much loved production of CATS returns to the London Palladium for a final bow.
Bursting onto the scene in 1981 CATS was full of energy, verve and choreographic vigour. Considered revolutionary in 1981, does it still stand the test of time or should it be left, like most things from the 80’s, a distant memory!
The reviews are staring to come in and once again Andrew Lloyd Webber’s CATS succeeds in bringing the magic to the West End.
The Telegraph particularly like Beverley Knight’s performance as faded glamour puss Grizabella calling her “wonderful in her majestic ruin, singing with touching sensitivity and nuanced musicality rather just belting it out”.
Cats is based on TS Eliot’s anthropomorphic poems and is a magical blend of fantasy, drama and romance set on the night that the Jellicle Cats meet for the Jellicle Ball. Cats runs until 2 January 2016 at the London Palladium.
Reviews include The Daily Telegraph, The Times, Evening Standard and The Stage. Further reviews to be added.
