One of the biggest hits in theater is back and meowing. The ever-prolific Andrew Lloyd Webber will again have three musicals running on Broadway: The Phantom of the Opera, SchoolofRock, and now CATS.
Co-producers The Shubert Organization and The Nederlander Organization issued a joint statement:
“In 1982, the arrival of CATS took Broadway by storm. The show went on to dazzle audiences at the Winter Garden for the next 18 years, becoming one of the longest-running shows in Broadway history. We are delighted to join together to bring Andrew Lloyd Webber’s phenomenal musical back to Broadway.”
Preview performances of CATS will begin July 14. The show will officially open on August 2.
