Cats Is Back on Broadway

VenueKings.comCats‘ original Broadway run kicked off in 1982, leading to seven Tony Award wins and a nearly 18-year run that made the musical the longest-running Broadway production when it closed in 2000. The show’s run is now the fourth-longest of all-time, having subsequently been overtaken by the still active The Phantom of the Opera (28 years and counting), Chicago (20 years), and The Lion King (19 years).

The revival debuted on July 31 at the Neil Simon Theatre in Manhattan and is led by British pop star Leona Lewis starring in the role of “Grizabella”.
