Ever since its first performance in May 1981, CATS has been enthralling audiences around the world and has become one of the most successful shows ever created. Now this worldwide phenomenon is making its triumphant return to Broadway!
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.
