It’s not too early to book your tickets for the return of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical CATS to the London Palladium this October.

It’s the kind of show you can see over and over again throughout your life and many people look back on their first visit as one of the best evenings of theatre they saw as a child, inspiring them to go, again and again and to now take their own children.

Many people have a favourite character. Mine’s SKIMBLESHANKS – THE RAILWAY CAT. He has the same orange colouring as my current, real life cat, Sid. He’s got a great song about how he keeps the railway running efficiently that really captures the magic and momentum of old fashioned railway travel.

Who’s you favourite? Perhaps –

GUS – THE THEATRE CAT. One of the oldest cat tribe members. He was once an actor, and is one of two cats who is only seen during his song.

JENNYANYDOTS. She is Gus’ mate and very “mumsy”. She was named after T. S. Eliot’s own cat. She sits all day and rules the mice and cockroaches at night, forcing them to undertake helpful functions and creative projects, to curb their naturally destructive habits.
