Having appeared in London’s West End in 1981 the musical then came to Vienna translated two years later, taking the city by storm. The production was performed for almost seven years and attracted around 2.3 million visitors. "Many people who loved it before now want to come with their kids", explained Manager Juan Escandell.
The award winning musical "Cats" tells the story of the Jellicle Cats and the choosing of the cat most deserving of going to the "Heavy Side Lair" or their version of heaven where they come back to life. Each musical number from Andrew Lloyd Webber tells the tale of a different feline friend and why they think they are most worthy of making the journey.
"Cats" has captured the hearts of some 65 million theatre goers from around the world in its time and continues to attract audiences with its celebrated music and lively performances. In the last 30 years the musical has been performed in 300 cities around the world with the words of such songs "Memory" becoming iconic for so many.
Tickets are still on sale for the musical which will take to the stage in an enormous theatre tent in Vienna Neu-Marx on Karl-Farkas-Gasse. Thanks to the round stage almost all of the audience will also have the perfect view of the action.
