CATS, the show that revolutionized musical theatre, is coming to The Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver next spring for eight performances from April 10 to 15, 2012.

Produced by CATS-Eye, LLC, and presented by Broadway Across Canada, the national tour of CATS is the only production in North America sanctioned by Andrew Lloyd Webber. With original direction by Trevor Nunn and choreography by Gillian Lynne, this is the CATS credited with the British invasion of Broadway. CATS celebrated its 30th anniversary on May 11, 2011, holding its place as the longest continuously touring Broadway musical in history. New this season will be the reintroduction of “psychic twins” Coricopat and Tantomile. These mystical cats, always in sync with one another, were last seen in the Broadway production. Where one cat goes, the other follows!

Based on T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, and with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, CATS won seven 1983 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Lighting and Best Costumes.

In October 1991, CATS became the longest continuously touring show in American theatre history. Five continents, 26 countries, and over eight and a half million audience members later, CATS is still America’s most loved family musical. Celebrating not only its Broadway touring legacy but the birth of the musical spectacular, CATS is still revolutionary and awe inspiring.
