As much a cultural phenomenon as a theatrical event, Cats enjoyed a record-breaking run on Broadway and in London, thanks to its feline-inspired costumes, sets, dancing and memorable songs by famed composer Andrew Lloyd Webber. The story, inspired by a collection of poetry from T.S. Eliot, revolves around a tribe known as the Jellicle cats, and their leader Old Deuteronomy, who'll choose one of their group to be reborn that night after their annual ball. The longest-touring Broadway musical in history, Cats features 20 of Webber's timeless melodies, including the hit song "Memory," and was the winner of seven 1983 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Reviews & Ratings
Bye Bye Birdie, originally produced in 1960, was the first Broadway hit to embrace the fire-breathing dragon known as rock ‘n’ roll, with a title character inspired directly by Elvis Presley and his dangerous hips. But the story is gentle and light-hearted, and Charles Strouse and Lee Adams’ songs are still as appealing as ever. The show includes so many catchy songs and riotous moments that audiences will be tapping their feet and rolling in the aisles.
Young rock idol Conrad Birdie is drafted into the army. Before his much anticipated induction, he pays a visit to a small town to give a typical teen age girl an all-American “good-bye kiss.” His promoter thinks about all the money that can be made if he can get this special event booked on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” The entire town of Sweet Apple, Ohio goes into a swoon and is captivated by the arrival of “Birdie.” Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical 1961, Bye Bye Birdie is truly a sparkling spoof of everyday life done with a great fondness for the birth of the rock ‘n’ roll era.
