The Ouest Hotel welcomes you in a charming and elegant setting just a short stroll from these two Parisian institutions.
A legendary musical rich in emotion
Cats tells of the life of a community of felines called the Jellicles, who get together once a year on a very special night for the Jellicle Ball. Each of them tell of their misfortunes and happiness, their injustices and their dreams for Old Deuteronomy, their leader, who must choose which of the Jellicles will ascend to a whole new life. But the event is disrupted by the arrival of a trickster cat with criminal inclinations ... Full of suspense, charm and emotion, Cats the Musical offers an unforgettable evening for couples, families or friends. Through exacting choreography and virtuosity, and thanks to the talent of makeup artists and costume designers, we forget that behind these charming cats are human performers. This magnificent show has enthralled audiences since launching in London in 1981, and has become one of the most successful musicals of all time. Don’t miss the opportunity to see this legendary show during your stay in Paris!
Then finish your evening in elegance and comfort at the three star Ouest Hotel, just a few steps from the Théâtre Mogador. You’ll be welcomed in a friendly atmosphere to enjoy a good night’s sleep dreaming of the secret life of cats.
