CATS is Back: Record-breaking musical returns to Hong Kong

Revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's CATS musical an award winner
CATS returns to Hong Kong’s Lyric Theatre this January

Thespians are in for a treat this January as Andrew Lloyd Webber’s smash hit CATS returns to stages in Hong Kong. The legendary West End musical first premiered in 1981 in London, where it went on to play for a record 21 years with almost 9,000 performances. It performed equally well on Broadway in New York, running for 18 years and winning seven prestigious Tony Awards. 

Based on T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, this 2015 revival of the famous musical sees the return of larger-than-life felines of the Jellicle tribe including beloved characters like Grizabella, Old Deuteronomy, Rum Tum Tugger, Macavity and more. Famed for its dazzling costumes and beautiful choreography, fans will also be swept away with musical scores such as ‘Mungojerrie & Rumpelteazer’ and ‘Memory’. 

CATS will be performed at the HKAPA

CATS will run from 6 January to 11 February 2018 at the HK Academy for Performing Arts. Tickets range from HK$445 to HK$1,045 and can be purchased at the HK Ticketing website here. Don’t miss out on this musical extravaganza!
