The show that revolutionized musical theatre is coming to San Diego. On May 11, 1981, "CATS" opened at the New London Theatre in the West End. Eight years later it celebrated its first important milestone: after 3,358 performances "CATS" became the longest running musical in the history of British theatre. "CATS" played its final performance on its 21st birthday, May 11, 2002.
The show opened on Broadway October 7, 1982 at the Winter Garden Theatre in New York City and continued to live up to its motto "Now and Forever." On June 19, 1997, "CATS" became the longest running musical on Broadway. It ended its 18 year run on September 10, 2000 with 7,485 performances. That record was broken by "The Phantom of the Opera" on January 9, 2006 when Phantom celebrated its 7,486th curtain.
