Why See Cats?

Broadway ShowsMusicalsFamily ShowsClassic

Come one, come all!

After an exciting revival on Broadway in 2016 - the first since its marathon 18-year run - Cats is heading out on tour, bringing the feline frolics to a town near you! A production full of musical theatre classics, instantly recognizable costumes, and choreography 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.


Once a year, a local tribe of street cats, all with their own distinct names and personalities, come together for the legendary "Jellicle Ball". Here they entertain each other, tell stories, and listen to wisdom given by their elderly and respected leader, Old Deuteronomy. A Broadway classic, Cats doesn't follow your usual musical theatre plot, instead, it's a dazzlingly choreographed jamboree that gives us the inside scoop on the real lives of our feline friends!
