Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-breaking musical CATS comes to QNCC Theatre for four days only from the 1 to 4 February 2017. Adapted from TS Eliot’s ‘Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats’, this wonderful blend of fantasy, drama and romance is set on the night that the Jellicle Cats meet for the Jellicle Ball in a sparkling fusion of music, dance and verse. The UK’s Daily Mail described the show as ‘purr-fect’, giving it a 5-star review in just one of the host of accolades from the British press.
With an amazing musical score that includes the timeless “Memory”, spectacular set designs, stunning costumes and breath-taking choreography, CATS is a magical musical like no other.
David Ian, Producer of CATS for David Ian Productions said:
I am absolutely thrilled to be bringing Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical CATS to Doha. CATS is truly one of the greatest musicals of all time and I cannot wait to present this incredible production at the QNCC Theatre at the end of this week.’
This original production is one of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history, seen by over 73 million people worldwide, CATS has enchanted audiences in over 300 cities around the world.
CATS received its world premiere at the New London Theatre in 1981 where it played for almost 9,000 performances. The show then returned to the West End in 2014 reuniting the original creative team, Director Trevor Nunn, Associate Director and Choreographer Gillian Lynne, Designer John Napier and Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.
The classic Lloyd Webber score includes Memory, which has been recorded by over 150 artists from Barbra Streisand and Johnny Mathis to Liberace.
