‘Cats’ to pounce into Costa Rica

September 4, 2009

Start purring, Broadway lovers: “Cats,” the iconic musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber, is coming to Costa Rica in December.

Twenty-one of the original “Cats” cast will perform in the Costa Rican debut of the beloved musical, bringing with them 60 costumes, 25,000 prop items and a 38-member crew, the daily La Nación reported. The visit is part of a Central and South American tour that will also include Colombia, Venezuela and Panama.

Five performances will be offered Dec. 16 to 20 at the Palacio de los Deportes in Heredia, north of San José. Ticket prices and points of sale are expected to be announced in mid-October.

Based on T.S. Eliot´s “Old Possum´s Book of Practical Cats” – Webber set Eliot´s verses to music – the show ran on Broadway for 18 years and in London for 21, setting long-run records in both cases. The musical´s most famous song is the now standard “Memory.”
