Who’s ready for the 2019 Cats renaissance?

Just a few months before the hit Andrew Lloyd Webber stage musical reaches the big screen (can you say Dame Judi Dench in a fur coat?), Cats will visit Detroit as part of its multi-season North American tour. If you’re like me and have always been curious about the story behind this feline extravaganza, now’s your chance to catch it live before it’s reimagined through the lens of CGI and IMAX screens.

CATS At Detroit’s Fisher Theatre: Show Details

Based on T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats opened on Broadway in 1982 and ran for 18 years prior to its 2016 return. Cats played its final performance on Broadway in 2017 and since its original world premiere, has been presented in over 30 countries, translated into 15 languages, and seen by over 73 million people worldwide. The musical has won seven Tony Awards (including best musical), two Grammy Awards for Best Cast Album, and held the title of longest-running musical in Broadway history until it was surpassed in 2006 by another Andrew Lloyd Webber masterpiece, The Phantom of the Opera.
