Composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and based on T.S. Eliot’s “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats,” the original Broadway production opened in 1982 at Broadway’s Winter Garden Theatre, where it ran for 7,485 performances and 18 years.

CATS tells the story of one magical night - the night of the “Jellicle Ball” -

One by one they tell their stories for the amusement their wise and benevolent leader, who must choose one of the Cats to ascend to “The Heaviside Layer” and be reborn into a whole new life. Featuring a cast of beautiful dancers and singers and the original Tony-winning sets and costumes, this beloved hit is still Broadway’s most unforgettable event. Experience CATS for the first time as it begins a new life for a new generation… or let it thrill you once again!

Featuring music by the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber, including the hit song “Memory,” this production of Cats is a Broadway must-see.

The show is approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes with one intermission.. Appropriate for ages 5 years and up.

"Mamie Parris was a showstopper"

Cats is an excellent musical and one of my favourites. Having seen Grizabella performed by Elaine Paige and Nicole Scherzinger, I have to say that Mamie Parris on Broadway was the most spectacular vocally and her performance was second to none. Would highly recommend this show to anyone. Seats are quite tight in the Neil Simon but views are good all round.

"A Classic!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Took my wife to see our first Broadway musical, and was not disappointed. It's a classic! The production was very well rehearsed and preformed very well. Didn't really have a plot, but that didn't bother us. It was a completely enjoyable evening! Hint: the show is expected to close at the end of December.

"Best sleep since arriving in New York"

Booked to see as no longer showing in London and heard it was a classic. Well my wife was asleep by the intermission and so was I. The theatre was so dated and there was no management of people so it got very crowded and claustrophobic. The act had no discernable plot and it felt like the microphones barely worked. What a shame as it was the most expensive theatre production we've ever attended. One to avoid.

"Great show - especially the second half"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed October 08, 2017 NEW
We were a little septic after the first half because the show misses a real story plot. But the second half totally blew our mind with amazing singing and dancing performances! Costumes are amazing and so is the decor. Overall this is a great production but I only wish the first half would have been as engaging as the second half, hence the four stars.
