Television's longest-running performing arts anthology, Great Performances presents a diverse programming portfolio of classical music, opera, popular song, musical theater, dance, drama, and performance documentaries. 

Great Performances: "Cats"

Friday at 9pm on WGBH 2

One of musical theater’s biggest blockbusters returns to Great Performances for an encore presentation. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats reigned over an 18-year Broadway run and unending touring productions that continue to travel the globe.

Based on T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, Webber’s hit-filled stage version boasts musical highlights aplenty, including Elaine Paige’s return to her original role as Grizabella, the faded “glamour cat” singing the show-stopping ballad “Memory.”
