SynopsisFor the first time, Andrew Lloyd Webbers world-wide phenomenon, the original musical CATS is coming to your city. Based on Old Possum`s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot TS Eliots, this wonderful blend of fantasy, drama and romance tells the story of a tribe of cats called the Jellicles and the night they make what is known as ``the Jellicle choice`` and decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life. The mesmerizing musical will include the score of the timeless classic Memory, spectacular set designs, stunning costumes and breathtaking choreography.
As of 2016, Cats is the fourth-longest-running show in Broadway history, and was the longest running Broadway show in history from 1987 to 2006 when it was surpassed by The Phantom of the Opera. It has been performed over 300 cities around the world and has been translated into more than 20 languages. The musical has won numerous awards, including Best Musical at both the Laurence Olivier Awards and the Tony Awards. In 1998, Cats was turned into a made-for-television film.
