2/4 Cats the musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber

What Andrew Lloyd Webber's renowned musical, Cats, is coming to town this month. The musical, which is the fourth longest-running Broadway show and sixth longest-running production in West End, is set to thrill musical and theatre fans in Singapore at the Sands Theatre in Marina Bay Sands. The musical narrative, which was adapted from T.S. Eliot's 1939 poetry book, Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, features popular songs such as Memory and The Jellicle Ball—both outstanding showtunes composed by Webber himself.

The production has then been translated into more than 15 languages and staged professionally in more than 30 countries, and saw American singer-songwriter Nicole Scherzinger cast as Grizabella for a 12-week limited run in 2014.
