CATS at Milton Keynes Theatre
T.S.Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats would at first seem an unlikely subject for a musical, but after his partnership with Tim Rice ended in 1980, Andrew Lloyd Webber returned to his childhood love of Eliot’s poems and started setting some to music. Eliot’s widow gave him an unpublished poem about Grizabella the Glamour Cat which gave the show it’s famous song “Memory”.
