The musical Cats features the music of Andrew Lloyd Weber, the original words of T.S. Elliot, and additional lyrics by Trevor Nunn and Richard Stilgoe. It is based on the poem collection Old Possums Book of Practical Cats, also by T.S. Elliot. Premiering on West End in 1981, it is a highly successful musical that ran for 21 years in London and 18 years on Broadway in New York. It also won Best Musical at both the Laurence Olivier Awards and Tony Awards. It is the origin of the highly popular show tune Memory, which has been covered by over 150 singers.

Since closing on West End and Broadway, the musical has seen numerous stagings in various locations around the world. These include Austria, Germany, France, Spain, and South Korea. Revivals were staged on West End in 2014 and 2015, and a Broadway revival was also staged in 2016.

Cats revolves around a tribe of cats known as the Jellicles, who gets together during the night of the Jellicle Ball for the most important event of their lives. It is the night when the respected elder, Old Deuteronomy, chooses the most deserving cat to ascend with him to the Heaviside Layer, where that chosen feline will be reborn to a new life.

Soon, each of the cats strut their stuff and begin to sing songs about why they are so special. One of the felines, Grizabella, the Glamour Cat, is shunned and taunted by the other cats in her tribe because of her disheveled, unpleasant appearance. Withered and wizened by age, she no longer resembles the proud, cheery, and beautiful character that she once was. Nevertheless, her emotional appeal wins the heart of Old Deuteronomy, who consigns her to the Heaviside Layer to be reborn.
