Catch the CATS Musical in Basel (2023)
Jan 10 - Jan 22
Meow! Come January, you will get a chance to catch the original English-language production of the CATS Musical in Basel.
The musical is set on a full moon night in a London junkyard. Once a year, this is where the Jellicle cats meet for a ball. And so, little by little, the junkyard becomes alive with cats of all types.
Each cat has a colorful personality, such as the brave Munkustrap and the forgiveness-seeking Grizabella. Everyone is fighting for the attention of one particular cat: the magical Mr. Mistoffelees.
Here's a fun fact: the songs in the CATS musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber are based on the 1939 poetry collection Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot.
Are you ready to meet the felines of the CATS Musical in Basel? 🌕🐈
Electrifying dancing, beautiful costumes, and elaborate stage decorations are just some of the reasons for this musical's long-lasting popularity.
The CATS Musical was initially released in London's West End in May 1981. One of the chief reasons it is still being performed globally is the memorable soundtrack by Andrew Lloyd Webber (no pun intended!)
CATS is a splendid musical suitable for all ages
CATS beguiles adults and children alike, whisking audiences away to the enigmatic realm of the Jellicle Cats. The mélange of felines embody some typical human traits - from ravishing Rum Tum Tugger to lewd Macavity and heavenly Victoria.
The musical has been performed in over 30 countries to an audience of more than 73 million. By the time Grizabella hits the stage to pour her life's emotions into "Memory," you will see why this is a timeless classic.
