Review - Cats the musical

 Cats at the Bournemouth Pavilion

So, as a cat lover myself and also a fan of Andrew Lloyd Webber's other musicals, this show was much anticipated. 

The story tells of one special night when the Jellicle cats meet at the Jellicle Ball, where their leader Old Deuteronomy decides which of the cats will be reborn into a new Jellicle life. The storyline feels like it lacks something and I felt it difficult to remain engaged with it.

Brilliant staging and highly impressive performances from the cast are what this show is all about, the musical numbers - with Memory getting a special mention - really showcase Andrew Lloyd Webber and the talent of the performers.

The cats danced in the aisles involving the audience and Old Deuteronomy stayed on stage in the interval to sign autographs.

A great high energy show with spectacular set designs, stunning costumes and breathtaking choreography, CATS is a magical musical like no other.

Cats is at Bournemouth Pavilion Theatre from Monday 11 – Saturday 16 August 2014.
