Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical ‘Cats’ is heading to hit screen. And the cast couldn’t be any more-Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden and Ian McKellen are all set to star in the film adaption.
Written and composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Cats first debuted in 1981 and is based on T.S. Elliot’s book of poetry called Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. The show begins with all of the cat characters assembling together, hoping to be chosen by Old Deuteronomy as the most deserving cat to make the journey to the Heavy Side Lair. Only one cat can be chosen and the musical numbers throughout the show tell the story of each cat hoping to be the chosen one.
