Andrew Lloyd Webber bought a dog because ‘Cats’ was so bad

In an interview with Variety, the creator of the legendary musical lamented about the film version of his musical, which he said was “was off-the-scale all wrong.”

“There wasn’t really any understanding of why the music ticked at all. I saw it and I just thought, ‘Oh, God, no,’ he said. “It was the first time in my 70-odd years on this planet that I went out and bought a dog. So the one good thing to come out of it is my little Havanese puppy.”

Lloyd Webber and his pup have grown incredibly close, especially with the pandemic, and he said he asked an airline to designate his pet as a therapy animal.”

“I wrote off and said I needed him with me at all times because I’m emotionally damaged and I must have this therapy dog,” says Lloyd Webber. “The airline wrote back and said, ‘Can you prove that you really need him?’ And I said ‘Yes, just see what Hollywood did to my musical “Cats.”‘ Then the approval came back with a note saying, ‘No doctor’s report required.'”

The movie, which starred James Corden, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, Rebel Wilson and others, was widely panned.
