CATS, THE MOVIE … WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO DECODE IT

The movie has finally come out!! After an extremely successful run in Broadway, the awesome musical comes to film.

I’ve always loved the music! It’s a ‘memory’ in my brain’s hard drive.

Yet, the plot? Kinda hard to follow.

Haven’t seen the movie yet but I soon will.

I found this clip this morning and after listening to Jennifer Hudson explain it on ‘The Stephen Colbert Show‘, it makes more sense now!

Merry Christmas!

Cats is a sung-through musical composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber based on the 1939 poetry collection Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot. It tells the story of a tribe of cats called the Jellicles and the night they make the “Jellicle choice“, deciding which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life. The musical includes the well-known song “Memory” as sung by Grizabella. As of 2019, Cats remains the fourth-longest-running Broadway show and the sixth-longest-running West End show.

Lloyd Webber began setting Eliot’s poems to music in 1977 and the compositions were first presented as a song cycle in 1980.

The bizarre story, based on a book of poems by T. S. Eliot, revolves around a tribe of cats called Jellicles, which are competing in a singing competition so they can die and be reborn as a better version of themselves. A new theatrical interpretation of the classic musical features an A-List cast, including Jennifer Hudson, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, James Corden, Ian McKellen, Idris Elba and Taylor Swift.

We break down the plot and the characters to help explain why these cats are singing and dancing in the first place, and what it all means.
