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.

High energy start to finish !! Excellent staging & choreography - now know why Bill T Jones won the Tony for best choreography - well deserved. We were worn out just watching the performers; they did so much movement all around the theatre. We enjoyed the show more than we thought we would thanks to a good story line, great acting & singing & excellent technical aspects. La Mirada still has an usher/house problem - especially with intermissions. They also set aside many seats 'in the middle' of many rows for high-paying guests, who were rudely late to the show & had to cross many paths to get to their seats. Suggest they rethink the process & have ushers seat late-comers in the back & not disrupt the enjoyment of those of us 'on-timers' !!

Fela! Was fabulous! That was the first time I viewed a live musical on "film" broadcast from a remote and distant location. I enjoyed it that way and felt I had better seats than some of the live audience members, although nothing beats being there!

A provocative and wholly unique hybrid of dance, theatre and music, Fela! explores the world of Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti. Using his pioneering music (a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies), Fela! reveals Kuti’s controversial life as an artist and political activist.
Featuring many of Fela Kuti’s most captivating songs and Bill T Jones’s 2010 Tony Award-winning choreography, this original new creation comes via Broadway to the National Theatre, where it will be broadcast live from the Olivier Theatre. Sahr Ngaujah (who won an Obie Award for his performance as Fela Kuti) will lead a new cast for the London production.
