Following “The Phantom of the Opera” and “Jesus Christ Superstar” The Shows Must Go On!—a YouTube channel devoted to streaming musicals every week—will be making another Andrew Lloyd Webber hit musical available online for free this coming weekend.
The iconic musical “Cats” can be streamed on the channel for 48 hours from Friday, 15 May, at 7pm (BST).
In case you’re wondering which production will be streamed this weekend, it’s the 1998 film you’ll be watching.
It was recorded at London’s Adelphi Theatre and stars the West End’s original Grizabella, Elaine Page; Broadway’s original Old Deuteronomy; Ken Page; and the legendary Sir John Mills as the Theatre Cat.
Sing along to the jolly tune of the show’s opening number “Jellicle Songs for Jellicle Cats” or go full-on sentimental with Elaine Paige’s heart-rendering version of the musical’s most remarkable number “Memory.”
It will definitely be a weekend to remember, so mark your calendars, set your alarms, and prepare yourself to be stunned by one of the world’s beloved musicals.
