Cats

On this day in 1982, the Broadway musical, Cats, opened. It closed nearly 18 years later on September 10, 2010! Despite its long run, it is only number 2 after Phantom of the Opera in longest running Broadway play! Cats was the winner of numerous Tony Awards in 1983.



The play is based upon a work by poet, T.S. Eliot, Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats which is found in The Complete Poems and Plays, 1909-1950 [810.81 ELI]. The score is by Andrew Lord Weber and is available as a CD, Cats: Complete Original Broadway Cast Recording [CD BROADWAY CAT].
