“Memory” – Cats
Music: Andrew Lloyd Webber Lyrics: T.S. Eliot & Trevor Nunn
Broadway Barks invited everyone to create a lasting memory with the first adopt-a-thon held in New York City on this day in 1999. The charitable event is now held annually every July for the benefit of shelter dogs and cats, like the characters in this musical based on a collection of poetry entitled Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot. At the show’s climax, Grizabella the glamour cat gives an emotional appeal for acceptance in this memorable tune which may inspire you to adopt a pet.
