Cats

The first musical I ever saw was Cats. 

It started a loooong obsession with the medium. 

A lot of folks don’t have a lot of nice things to say about the production these days but you need to remember, it’s one of the old school musicals. And asides from a couple of updates (the Rum Tum Tugger now has dreadlocks and raps) the current production stays true to form. 

The cast is stellar. Delta Goodrem (as Grizabella) didn’t tour the show however Perth audiences are lucky to have the sensational Delia Hannah in the role – a role she has played many times in many productions. Her final ‘Memory’ was worth the price of the ticket alone. 

Let the memory, live again.
