Cats is a 1998 direct-to-video musical film based on the stage musical Cats by Andrew Lloyd Webber, itself based on Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot. Lloyd Webber oversaw orchestration for the film and called on Gillian Lynne, the original show's choreographer, to train the cast for the film. David Mallet served as the director of this production. The film is a recreation of the staged production, but with several cuts made to reduce the run-time. It was filmed at the Adelphi Theatre in London in 1997, with the cast selected from various past and (then) present international Cats productions. Initially released to VHS and subsequently DVD and Blu-ray, the film has since been shown on television channels including PBS, BBC, and Ovation TV.
