Cats, one of the most popular musicals in history, will be returning to Broadway, starting with previews on July 14. The play will officially open on July 31. Cats will be performed at the Neil Simon Theatre.
When the musical opens, Andrew Lloyd Webber will again have the notable distinction of having three musicals being performed on Broadway the same time. The Phantom of the Opera and School of Rock – The Musical are also Lloyd Webber productions.
Lloyd Webber composed Cats based on Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot. Cats originally opened in 1982 at the Winter Garden Theatre on Broadway, where Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock – The Musical is currently being performed.
The original production of Cats was performed 7,485 times over a period of 18 years. It was one of the longest-running shows on Broadway. The first production won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book and Best Original Score.
Cats has been performed in more than 30 countries and translated into 15 languages. Over 73 million people have seen the musical. This will be the first Broadway revival of Cats.
British pop singer Leona Lewis will play the role of Grizabella the Glamour Cat in the new performances of Cats. She has worldwide record sales of over 20 million and has reached Number One on the music charts in 35 countries. She has been nominated for three Grammys and several other awards.
The cast will also include Quentin Earl Darrington, Eloise Kropp, Ricky Ubeda, and Tyler Hanes in lead roles. The musical will be directed by Trevor Nunn with choreography by Andy Blinkenbuehler of Hamilton.
