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.

Quotes & Highlights
“This is quite a takeoff!” —Boston Globe
When Sonia learns of her son’s decision to leave college, enlist in the military and fight against terror in Afghanistan in the weeks following 9/11, memories of her own childhood overwhelm her. She struggles to reconcile being forced as a young girl to leave Cuba at the dawn of Fidel Castro’s rule with her own responsibilities as a mother facing uncertainty.
p. Set between post-revolutionary Cuba and post-9/11 America, Sonia Flew telescopes the large cultural and political forces of an historic moment to examine their impact on the intimate lives of ordinary men and women.
Sonia is a Cuban-American woman smuggled as a child out of Cuba and into the United States as a part of Operation Pedro Pan. Secure in a world filled with parental duty and Jewish tradition, Sonia’s existence is fragile, yet peaceful.
But when terrorism strikes American soil and Sonia’s only son enlists in the military, Sonia must find a way to come to terms with her past, her lost parents, her own children and her adopted country – or risk losing everything that she loves.
