Musical success story
Cats has been seen by people around the world in countless productions, but it’s the London version that is now coming to Amsterdam. The musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber is based on TS Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, but is now a classic in its own right. It premiered in London’s West End in May 1981 and became an unmitigated success, running for 21 years and holding the title of longest-running West End show until 2006. It returned to London for a new run in 2014, and is coming to Amsterdam this December, undoubtedly to the delight of musical lovers throughout the land.
