Cats Tickets

London Palladium

Starring Beverley Knight as Grizabella, Cats returns to the London Palladium backed by popular demand. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical phenomenon features well-loved songs including ‘Memory’ and ‘Macavity’ and follows the tribe of Jellicle cats as they gather together for the much anticipated Jellicle Ball.

Following its hugely successful 2014/15 run, Cats is back on the West End starring the award-winning musician Beverley Knight as Grizabella. This dance and musical phenomenon that has been seen by more than 50 million people returns to the London Palladium backed by overwhelming public demand and critical acclaim.

Based on T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, the musical takes audiences on a famously surreal journey into the world of the Jellicle cats as they gather together for the Jellicle Ball. It is here that their leader, Old Deuteronomy, selects the cat that will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and be reborn. What follows is a series of ‘auditions’ for this privilege, and through a selection of songs the audience gets to know the individual identity and personality of each cat of the Jellicle tribe. But who will Old Deuteronomy chose to ascend? Featuring some of the most famous music in the musical theatre songbook, from ‘Memory’ and ‘Macavity’ to ‘The Ad-dressing of Cats’, Cats takes us through the junk-yard lives of well-loved characters including Grizabella, Macavity, Old Deuteronomy and Rum Tum Tugger.

The Tony and Olivier award-winning director Sir Trevor Nunn (Les Miserables, Starlight Express) and classically trained choreographer Dame Gillian Lynne (The Phantom of the Opera, Aspects of Love) bring Andrew Lloyd Webber’s innovative score to life in what can only be described as a display of Britain’s best theatrical talent. The trio bring back Cats, one of the longest running West End musicals, in a production that is as polished and passionately performed as ever.

Queen of British Soul, Beverley Knight, will take on the role of Grizabella following the huge successes of Nicole Scherzinger and Kerry Ellis in the role in the 2014/15 run. Knight is delighted to be joining the ranks of musical theatre legends to have performed Grizabella, adding: “To follow in their footsteps is something to truly relish! [...] Working with Andrew will be a real privilege”.

Cats will open on 23rd October 2015 at the London Palladium and will run until 2nd January 2016.

CATS is a show that me and my family have all grown up. It's a beautiful show. This adaptation was wonderful, apart from one part that is normally done as a rap by a cat which was updated to the cat looking quite robotic which I did not enjoy. Some s Read more

I love Cats. This show was the reason why I came to London. The cast on that evening were brilliant and I loved every minute. The Palladium is such a beautiful theatre and the staff there are doing a very good job!

The show itself, is, admittedly, dross. It makes no sense whatsoever and you can leave your brain at the door, as you won't need it. The book is rather weak, and aside from a handful of songs, the score pretty much makes no sense. The reason for the Read more
