Mews and Nips: Cats the Musical is Back on Broadway

cats-the-musical

One of the most beloved and most satirized musicals of the 1980’s is back on Broadway: Cats, which is currently in previews, will open at the Neil Simon Theater on July 31. I never saw Cats on Broadway, but saw the touring company in Washington DC, and I was charmed and mesmerized by the performance. The soundtrack is still a favorite, even after all these years, and “Memory” can still bring a tear to my eyes, no matter how over the top it may be. For more about the revival, visit catsthemusical.com. What about you? Were you a fan? Will you go see it again?

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Sunday, I shared a few favorite books for your summer reading list, on Monday, we told you about the dangers of e-cigarettes for cats, on Tuesday, we introduced you to cat artist Adriana Gasperi, on Wednesday, Allegra and Ruby shared their morning routine, on Thursday, we featured a beautiful new scratcher from Feline Innovations, and on Friday, I announced that I’ll be participating in a free teleseminar titled “Why Won’t My Cat Use the Litter Box?”.

Today’s video shows Boomer, the little “brother” of Didga, the famous skateboarding cat. Looks to me like Boomer is a fast learner. I love how he’s pushing off with his leg!

Have a great weekend!

    I saw Cats twice – St Louis and Columbia, MO. Have the DVD and CD. I also named my male cat Rum Tum Tugger. I have 4 cats and he is the only male. He is so handsome that I thought it was appropriate.

    I saw Cats once in Montreal and once right her in my hometown…and I also have the DVD. Never tire of it, ever!

    I have seen various productions of CATS so many times and never have I grown tired of ANY of them!

    I saw Cats years ago at the Lyric Theater in Baltimore. I was lucky enough to have an aisle seat and throughout the show you never knew when a “cat” would be patting on your arm as you were watching what was going on the stage. Loved it and there is something very special about sharing it live.

      I had an aisle seat one of the times I saw it, too, Alyce, and it was so cool!

    I also saw it in Washington D.C. many years ago. I hadn’t known much about the show before I saw it (and I regret to say that I had not yet become a lover and caretaker of cats at that time), but I was also very touched by “Memory.” PBS also did a wonderful video of the stage play a few years ago with some of the original cast. I would very much enjoy seeing it again, now that I am much more of a fanatic feline fan!

      I bet your perspective would be a little different now, Will! 🙂
