Of course, they adapted this hit musical to film. Honestly, it was a no-brainer since Cats was the longest-running Broadway show from 1997 to 2006! Andrew Lloyd Webber composed this musical, and it’s based on a collection of poems by T.S. Eliot. What’s probably permanently etched into your memory from the musical is the song “Memory.” No, seriously, Barbara Streisand and Barry Manilow even covered it! Cats won countless awards at both the Tony Awards and Laurence Olivier Awards.
