Cats

Genre: Musical; Starring: John Mills; Author: Andrew Lloyd Webber; Runtime (in minutes): 120; MPAA Rating: Unrated; Distributor: Universal Home Video

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Cats may have exhausted its nine lives on Broadway, but this staged-for-the-cameras spectacle gives it a 10th. Reissued to commemorate the show’s final curtain, this campy reproduction features pumped-up orchestrations, rock-video lighting, and close-ups of grease-painted, gyrating felines — plus Paige, who’s pitch-purr-fect on ”Memory.” Sure to last ”Now and Forever,” even if you watch it only once.
