Great Performances: Cats
Great Performances brings back the 1998 production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats in high definition and digital sound. One of musical theater's biggest blockbusters, the show has reigned over an 18-year Broadway run and unending touring productions that continue to travel the globe. Based on T.S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, Webber's hit-filled stage version boasts musical highlights aplenty, including Elaine Paige's return to her original role as Grizabella, the faded “glamour cat” singing the show-stopping ballad Memory.
