CATS

CATS

October 4 - October 20, 2013

Northbrook Theatre, 3323 Walters Ave Northbrook, IL 60062

Based on the universally popular poetry of T.S. Eliot, CATS tells the story, in song and dance, of the annual gathering of Jellicle cats at which time one special cat is selected to ascend to the Heaviside layer. A true musical theatre phenomenon, CATS opened at London's New London Theatre on May 11, 1981 and ran for a record-setting 21 years. CATS's London success was nearly matched on Broadway where it ran at the Wintergarden Theatre for just over 18 years.

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Based on Old Possum's Book Of Practical Cats By T. S. Eliot
