Overture [ Top ]
Midnight. Not a sound from the pavement.
Suddenly an explosion of lights and music fills the theatre, revealing a larger-than-life junkyard.
Probing car lights tear across the darkened landscape of bottles and boxes,
briefly catching the darting image of a running feline.
One by one, the curious cats emerge. Tonight is the one special night each year when the tribe of Jellicle Cats reunites to celebrate who they are. The cats emerge singing of their unique
abilities and special traits in a fusion of poetr yand dance.
