You can’t mention the words “musical theater” without the image of a bunch of humans in furry costumes dancing around a junkyard jumping into your head. The famous (some would say infamous) Andrew Lloyd Webber musical inspires both passion and revulsion, but its importance is undeniable. And now, it’s a feature film.

The 2019 adaptation of the popular musical is a vignette of special cats, their abilities, and most importantly, their songs. Sure, there’s a loose narrative, but it’s far more showcase than fairy tale. Among these famous felines are Bustopher Jones, Old Deuteronomy, Rum Tum Tugger, and of course, Magical Mr. Mistoffelees. Cats: one part musical, one part fever dream, and a complete delight.
