After an exciting revival on Broadway in 2016 - the first since its marathon 18-year run - the Cats is finally heading out on tour, bringing the feline frolics to a town near you! Full of musical theatre classics (Memory, MaCavity, The Rum Tum Tugger to name a few), spectacular and instantly recognizable costumes, and dance numbers and bursting with cat-itude, this iconic show is purrfect for newcomers and old-timers.
Created by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Cameron Mackintosh in 1981, Cats is based on poet T.S Elliot's 1939 anthology, Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, a guide to all kinds of cats from the streetwise stray to the pampered lap cat. This revival retains direction from Trevor Nunn and revised choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler after Gillian Lyne.
