Actually, the plate on the London production's car reads NAP 1. "NAP" refers to the set designer, John Napier. Each live production of Cats has a license plate that begins with "NAP" and then the number of the production. Since Broadway was the second production to open, it's license plate read "NAP 2". And so on... The set used in the film was from the UK tour, not the London show. A special TSE plate was made for it. Forgive me, I'm hard-core. :P

Stephen Post: Actually, I've heard the license plate says various different things in each stage production and in the film. I've only seen the film, in which it does definitely say TSE1, but I think it's only fair to ensure you know what these people are talking about before calling them ignorant.

The TSE1 plate is used in the London production of Cats. Cats first opened in London, which is probably where the "1" comes from. There's a different plate on Broadway.

I thought the NAP numberplate was because that fat cat (I forget the name, I've only seen it once...I was concentrating on Tugger...yum!) well I thought NAP was because that fat cat was NAPping in it ^_^ My bad :P

I also noticed that it said T.S.E.1 also to someone who said it said something else and it does say TSE 1 for a fact!

I saw the musical a couple of years ago in London and the numberplate on the car then was TSE 1.

In the movie version shown on PBS some years back, and later released on DVD, the license plate is definitely TSE 1.

That isn't true. The license plate is TSE1 in recognition of the author of the book "The Book of Practical Cats" or something like it. If you've seen NSE on there, then you are either blind or didn't see Cats. Watch it again, ya ignorant "brits"!
