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, memorable songs by famed composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and fun character names like Grizabella and Rum Tum Tugger. Now the play is being brought to life by Children's Musical Theater San Jose, starring actors age 14 to 20. 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
To get into the spirit of the silent film era of Hollywood, the cast and crew visited the Silent Movie Museum in Niles and took a trip to see Jason Graae’s cabaret performance at the Rrazz Room in San Francisco that saluted composer Jerry Herman’s 80th birthday.
This romantic tale of the silent film era tells the story of legendary director Mack Sennett (best known for his Keystone Kops_) and his greatest star, the adorable Mabel Normand. It features a musical score by Jerry Herman (_Hello, Dolly!, Mame) that is considered one of his very best. Set in an early 20th-century movie studio, this delightful, intelligent musical captures the spirit of an exciting time when this new, creative industry was springing to life, with scenes that range from madcap comedy to frolicking bathing beauties to intimate romance. Don’t miss this rarely-performed musical gem!
