The musical contains the properly-identified music “Memory” as sung by Grizabella. It feels dropped in from another musical — it was originally intended to be for an early draft of Lloyd Webber’s 1993 musical Sunset Boulevard, and it may easily be swapped in for any song Norma Desmond sings in that present. But it also seems to be broadcast from one other aircraft of existence altogether, a lot as the outcast, lonely Grizabella has been living a very different life than most of the Jellicle cats in their cosseted community areas. You may know a song from Cats, and that song — the only music you realize, unless you are a extra severe musical theater and/or cat fan — is “Memory.” That’s the music that Grizabella sings on the show’s climax, in spite of everything the opposite cats reject her when she makes an attempt to reenter the cat group.

This extravagance, along with the present’s then-huge finances of greater than $four million, good buzz coming from London, hit recordings of “Memory” already burning up the airwaves, and the general public’s anticipation of the following big Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, all resulted in a clamor for Cats that drove what was then one of many largest advance gross sales in Broadway historical past. It might not appear to be a lot to take a look at in comparison with today’s lavish theatrical production designs, but in 1982, Cats was pure spectacle of a sort rarely seen on Broadway. “Tour Dates (2019) p.2”. catsthemusical.com (official website).
