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.

I loved the simple staging and costumes. The colorful tunics and masks was a wonderful way to do the costumes. The monkeys were fantastic. However, having the actors play multiple roles required distinct change of character when they appeared on stage. That wasn't always accomplished. In particular the Akela/Bagheera change needed to be more distinct.
This piece requires that one is already familiar with the Jungle Book. The story. Since this is a staple of childhood, the piece is passable.
Finally, the music captured my attention. I feel the songs were interesting and well performed. What caught my attention most was that some of the songs sounded like Christmas chorals shifted into a locrian scale with some other eastern embellishments.
The performance was good for the prices.
This new musical for children brings Mowgli and all his friends to life, as the stage at La Mirada Theatre is transformed into an exotic jungle, ripe with the mystery, drama, action and surprises of this beloved tale.
Based on the 1894 classic children’s novel by Rudyard Kipling,_ The Jungle Book_ is a collection of stories that tell the tale of Mowgli, a human child adopted and raised by wolves in an Indian jungle. The stories have been adapted for the stage by David Morgan, with music by Jamie Ramirez.
