Cats' Last Meow in London
The long-running theatrical sensation Cats closes in London's West End this Saturday, May 11, 2002, on the date of its 21st anniversary. The Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, based on a collection of poems by T.S. Eliot, will take a final bow after its 8,950th performance.
To make sure it goes out with a bang, a huge afternoon celebration has been organized to take place in Covent Garden; this will include face painting, goody bag giveaways, live interviews with cast members, and a competition to win tickets to the show's final performance. The festivities will be capped off with a live outdoor screening of the final show for those unable to get tickets to see it in the theater.
