New Broadway show for Oasis of the Seas

Question: How many times can you see CATS, the Broadway show?

Answer: As many as possible.

Let's be clear. We're not really "cat people." Dog lovers rarely are. There's conflict that comes with the DNA. But "cats" are not CATS, unless the very sight of a feline creeps you out, in which case being in the audience of the Broadway show is not CATSadvisable.

The audience for CATS will be on Oasis of the Seas, co-holder of the "biggest cruise ship in the world" title. That means a new audience — or at least a recycled old one — will enjoy the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber and the story that goes with it. We've seen it three times in various settings (including Broadway) but never on a ship.

It's the latest Broadway show for Royal Caribbean, following Hairspray — which has been on Oasis of the Seas since it arrived in 2009 —and Mamma Mia and Saturday Night Fever and Chicago.

Show No. 5 in that line-up will make its debut after Oasis goes into dry-dock this fall for a refurbishment that somebody, somewhere, is guaranteed to describe as the "CATS meow."

Wait a minute…somebody already has.
