I was so disappointed with Cats, I had high expectations after all the great reviews but it really was a let down. The cast are very talented singers and some are great dancers, but that's it for positive comments I'm afraid. There was no storyline whatsoever, just terrible song after terrible song introducing lots of different cats. The songs are... More

What an amazing performance from the moment it started right until the last second the final cat left the stage. Full of energy that kept you entertained throughout. A few new twists like the rapping Rum Tum Tugger and this made it more interesting. Cats does not have the big story line but that makes it all the better to... More

I don't understand the people who say there's no storyline or that they don't understand the story...it's literally spelt out very early on in the show! The plot is simple to follow, and the show is easy and fun to watch with a good balance of funny and sad moments. Also, the people who say there's too much singing? It's... More

Since 1910, the London Palladium has been the premier theatre in the West End, hosting Royal Variety Performances, major concerts and shows by all the biggest names to audiences of over 2,250 in its plush, deep-red and slightly uncomfortable seats. It's owned by Andrew Lloyd Webber, who continues to add to his fortune with the current revival of the musical... More

May have been a hit in the 80's ,and frankly it should have stayed there. The whole show has only ONE song - memories!!! There are far better shows out there. Don't get drawn in with the hype, the sooner it closes the quicker it will free the theatre up for a more worthy production.

Going to see cats was a Christmas present from my husband and I was over the moon that I was going to see Nicole. You can't fault the dancing it was brilliant but thought songs were repeated too much and went on for too long. You couldn't understand what they were singing a lot of the time. Nicole was amazing...

Our last trip to the theatre was to see Lino King and we left at the interval as it lacked passion and energy. The revival of Cats at the London Palladium is completely the opposite. We saw it many, many years ago and had some idea what to expect, but the energy put into the singing and dancing was off... More

I throughly enjoyed this showing of CATS, the energy of the dancers is second to none. You have to understand this show is just to tell you about the different CATS, from the lap cat through to the ship's cats. Every style of dancing is included in the show and the singing is great. It's an explosion on the stage.... More

Really enjoyed Cats tonight. Always loved this show and wondered how it would be? From the moment it started,it was fantastic. The singing and dancing was exceptional. There have been a few changes but not too many. Everyone was great. One number in the first half,the dancing was so fantastic, we thought the audience were never going to stop clapping.... More
