The Muny's description of CATS reads, "It's the night of the Jellicle Ball, and cats of every description have gathered in a back alley, slinking around the refuse and cast-offs of the human world. Every cat has his say, and the theatre cat, the Siamese cat, and the bedraggled old Grizabella tell the stories of their lives...and wait. Only one of them will travel on to the Heavyside Layer. Which one will it be? The energy and elegance that has made CATS one of Broadway's longest-running musicals also make it a purr-fect show for the whole family."
