Andrew Lloyd Webber's epic Cats takes its characters from T.

S.

Eliot's book Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. Though the book contains no narrative structure, Webber has created one, although what drew audiences to the theatre in droves was the charm of the feline characters, not the tale of what happens to them. The score is rather fetching but simple, with moments of elegance, as in during the now-standard "Memory." The longest-running musical of its time, Cats is at times overrated, but as a whole it retains the charm that attracted audiences. This is the original Broadway cast album, containing slight musical alterations from the earlier London version (and, of course, different singers), though it is not very distinct. Geffen 2031 is a two-disc complete version of the show and there is an abridged, one-disc version, Geffen 2026.
