Andrew Lloyd Webber's legendary musical, CATS has endured as one of the most breathtaking theatrical experiences of all time. Inspired by a collection of T.S. Eliot’s poetry, the musical is the second longest-running show in Broadway history, and after more than 25 years, it remains a world-wide phenomenon. With its story of wonder and magic, dazzling choreography, whimsical feline costumes and magnificent score, including the hit song, “Memory,” CATS won seven Tony awards including Best Musical. The intimate setting of the Norris Theatre will bring you closer than ever to the stunning fantasy world of this spectacular musical. The memories will live forever!
