Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's worldwide musical phenomenon, based on T. S. Eliot's book, makes its triumphant return to Broadway.

From the producers: Based on T. S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, the show is set amongst a larger-than-life junkyard playground and is alive with feline characters, who've come out to play on one special night of the year - the night of the "Jellicle Ball." One by one they tell their stories for the amusement their wise and benevolent leader, who must choose one of the Cats to ascend to "The Heaviside Layer" and be reborn into a whole new life.

Following its 1982 New York premiere, "Cats" became an international phenomenon and has continuously toured the U.S. for 30 years. The revival will be an entirely new production based on the 2014 London Palladium revival. Trevor Nunn, who staged the original London and Broadway productions, directs.



Casting Notes: Leona Lewis played her final performance as Grizabella on 10/9. Mamie Parris ("School of Rock") assumes the role beginning 10/17.

"Cats" opened on Broadway at the Winter Garden Theatre in 1982, where it ran for 7,485 performances before closing in September 2000. It held the title of Broadway's longest-running musical, but was surpassed by Lloyd Webber's other hit, "The Phantom of the Opera," which currently holds the title. "Cats" won seven Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Lighting and Best Costumes.
