A Broadway Classic Returns Home
Cats, 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 of 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.

The original Broadway run kicked off in 1982, leading to seven Tony Award wins, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Lighting and Best Costumes., and a nearly 18-year run that made the musical the longest-running Broadway production when it closed in 2000. The show’s run is now the fourth-longest of all-time, having subsequently been overtaken by the still active The Phantom of the Opera, Chicago, and The Lion King.
The show is on sale until May 28, 2017.

Critic’s Review by the Bergen Record
It’s kitschy and fun, sometimes quite touching, and marvelously well done. It’ll likely be very nostalgic for anyone who saw the show before, and a treat for people who haven’t…and don’t go expecting a profound theatrical experience. “Cats” is a one-of-a-kind entertainment.
