CATS, one of the longest running shows in the West End and on Broadway, received its world premiere at the New London Theatre in 1981 where it played for 21 record-breaking years and almost 9,000 performances – and this October it’s coming to Australia!

Yesterday, the Producers of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s CATS announced the all-Australian cast for the acclaimed West End revival production which tours Australia from October this year.
