Firstly, I want to say hello and introduce myself to anybody who doesn’t know me. My name is Liz Gogol. I’m a radio lady here in London and I love musicals. So, I really wasn’t surprised to have had such an amazing time seeing ‘CATS’ on the Start.ca Performance Stage at Budweiser Gardens.
I’ll admit, this is not my first time seeing the Broadway musical however, it was better than I remember it. There is no show on earth quite like ‘CATS’. It’s kitschy, fun, and the music, composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, is spectacular. The sets, costumes, and choreography will transport you and shrink you down in size to experience a cat’s world as you meet all kinds of eccentric furry felines.
Based on the 1939 poetry collection Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot, “Cats" is truly one-of-a-kind. It is so different from any other theatre experience and it’s a must-see on any theatre lover’s bucket list.
