Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats is a magical musical like no other – a magnificent all-singing, all-dancing spectacular with inspired choreography, mischievous costumes and a superb score that includes the unforgettable ‘Memory’.

Based on T.S.

Simon Evans’ last show, Genius 2.0 (★★★★★ “A Masterclass” The Scotsman) provided an hilarious analysis of the departure of any visible sign of intelligence from modern life. But his new show raises the stakes, with his usual excoriating views of a world on fire given a perspective shift from personal revelations that turned his world upside down this year. Simon Evans is the star of Live at the Apollo, Mock The Week, BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth & Simon Evans Goes To Market. Simon has made appearances on This Week, Question Time, Celebrity Mastermind, Pointless Celebrities and Mastermind The Professionals. “A gripping and, ultimately heart-warming tale… rich with Evans' wit and caustic observation.” (★★★★The Scotsman).   “You expect a high standard of stand-up from this veteran performer. But in sharing something so deeply personal, he’s exceeded what seemed to be his full potential… I’d expect it to get even better when it goes out on tour. Outstanding stuff.” ( ★★★★ ½ Chortle).  Tickets: £16, Concessions £14 (includes a £1 donation to the Regent Centre Development Fund) Age Guidance: Strictly 14+ Likely to be swearing and adult content
