Cats is composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, the man behind The Phantom of the Opera, Evita, Sunset Boulevard and The Wizard of Oz. It tells the tale of one special night of the year when "all Jellicle cats meet at the Jellicle Ball where Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, makes the Jellicle choice and announces which of them will go up to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life."

It opened in London's West End 1981 and closed 2002. It made it's Broadway debut in 1982 and ran until 2000. Ticket prices start at AED275.
