This acclaimed West End revival of the Andrew Lloyd Webber classic CATS musical opens in Australia on 30th October and then tours to Hobart, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide finishing in Perth in April 2016.  Tickets are on sale now.

CATS, one of the longest running shows in the West End and on Broadway, received its world premiere at the New London Theatre in 1981 where it played for 21 record-breaking years and almost 9,000 performances.  Since its world premiere, CATS has been presented in over 30 countries, has been translated into 15 languages and has been seen by over 73 million people worldwide. The classic Lloyd Webber score includes Memory, which has been recorded by over 150 artists, from Barbra Streisand and Johnny Mathis to Liberace and Barry Manilow.

The 2015 Olivier Award-nominated show, which was reworked by the original creative team – Director Trevor Nunn, Associate Director and Choreographer Gillian Lynne, Designer John Napier and Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber – was a smash hit throughout its run at the London Palladium in 2014/15. This hit revival introduces a rapping ‘street cat’ in the famous Rum Tum Tugger role, who will perform some serious breakdancing moves.
