Set in New York City, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Cats” follows five cats under the guidance of their spiritual leader as they deal with the ramifications of one of them becoming a religious sacrifice. How will the Cats deal with this alleyway-shaking event? Will Garbage Cat find love? Is the whole thing a metaphor for 19th century British social politics? One thing is for certain, this show is about Cats.
(To avoid paying for the rights, this has been written entirely from memory. I have never seen Cats.)
In 1986, the seminal film Top Gun opened in cinemas to universal acclaim, and saw a 500% increase in the recruitment of naval aviators. It is a great crime that this dogfight-soap opera has gone without a stage adaptation… until NOW! Join Maverick, Goose, Charlie and the lads for a thrilling and artistic adaptation of the film exclusively for the cellar theatre!
