CATS Closes at the Paramount Theatre Tonight

CATS comes to Seattle's Paramount Theatre for eight performances from April 17 through tonight, April 22, 2012. Tickets are available on-line at stgpresents.org and tickets.com, by calling 877-STG-4TIX (784-4849) or in person at The Paramount Theatre Box Office (Monday through Friday, 10am to 6pm).
 
Produced by CATS-Eye, LLC, the national tour of CATS is the only production in North America sanctioned by Andrew Lloyd Webber. With original direction by Trevor Nunn and choreography by Gillian Lynne, this is the CATS credited with the British invasion of Broadway. CATS celebrated its 30th anniversary on May 11, 2011, holding its place as the longest continuously touring Broadway musical in history.  New for the 2011-2012 season will be the reintroduction of "psychic twins" Coricopat and Tantomile.  These mystical cats, who are always in sync, were last seen in the Broadway production.  Where one goes, the other follows...!

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.

CATS opened on Broadway on 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, it became the longest running musical on Broadway. CATS ended its 18 year run on September 10, 2000 with 7,485 performances. 

Based on T.S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, and with music by Andrew Lloyd WebberCATS won seven 1983 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Lighting, and Best Costumes.

In October of 1991, CATS became the longest continuously touring show in American theatre history. Five continents, 26 countries, and more than eight and a half million audience members later, CATS is still America's most loved family musical. Celebrating not only its Broadway touring legacy but the birth of the musical spectacular, CATS is still revolutionary and awe inspiring. 

Now that it has been seen by millions of audience members worldwide, it is time to celebrate with the whole family the magic, the mystery, the wonder of CATS

Create a special 'memory' one more time.
