Lea Salonga in Cats Musical Philippines on July 24 to August 22, 2010 at the CCP Main Theater

"Lea Salonga in Cats Musical Philippines on July 24 to August 22, 2010 at the CCP Main Theater"

CATS is simply quite a phenomenon. With magnificent music composed by the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber, including the poignant hit song "Memory," an imaginative set, inspired choreography and stunning costumes, CATS is a brilliant song and dance spectacular not to be missed as it makes its premiere in Manila.

CATS is the best-known and best-loved musical the world has ever known, it once held the record for the longest~running musical on the West End, only recently being surpassed by Phantom of the Opera. In addition CATS played 18 years on Broadway and has been presented in over twenty-six countries, in about three hundred cities, in ten languages.

CATS first opened in London in May 1981 to rave reviews and went on to win a record-breaking number of awards worldwide including two Oliver Awards for 'Musical of the Year' and 'Outstanding Achievement of the Year in Musicals', and seven Tony Awards.


Cats is based on a series of poems by T.S. Eliot. The magnificent stage set is a rubbish dump, three times larger than life, where the Jellicle Cats have come out to play. It is the night of the annual Jellicle Ball when their leader, Old Deuteronomy, will announce the name of the cat that will be reborn to a new life in the Heavyside Layer.

The announcement will be made just before dawn. While they wait, the cats amuse themselves (and us!) with stories of famous cats of the past and present. Dawn comes, and Old Deuteronomy gathers the cats together for his announcement of the name of the cat to be reborn.

Experience the magic of Broadway right here in the Philippines with CATS =)

  1. I watched CATS on the first show of the first day with relatives and friends, tickets courtesy of my mom. It is one of the best shows I have ever seen! My favorite cat is Munkustrap, the narrator and protector of the younger cats... great voice and whatta hunk for a cat =) Regarding Grizabella, I liked Elaine Paige's acting (you can check it out in YouTube)better than that of Lea Salonga but Lea's singing voice was just superb! I never realized she had a very powerful voice. My sister beside me, almost cried when "Memory" was sung... spectacular! Everyone in the audience loved the show because we all gave CATS Now and Forever Musical a standing ovation =)
