A masterpiece of Andrew Lloyd Webber, the musical ''Cats'' is coming to Zagreb in March of 2017.
The famous musical in the original West End production will be presented to Zagreb audience at the Zagreb Arena on the 22nd of March 2017 and it will be the first visit of this musical to Croatia.
The ''Cats'' musical is based on a collection of ''Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats'' by T.S. Eliot which returned to the West End stage two years ago.
The original London crew has been touring the world with the old creative team of ''Cats'' – the director Trevor Nunn, the assistant director and choreographer Gillian Lynne, the designer John Napier and the composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.
The ''Cats'' musical is the fourth longest running West End musical and the fourth longest running show in Broadway history. Its debut was in the New London Theatre in 1981 where it was staged almost 9,000 times during 21 years of running. One year later it made its Broadway debut in New York and this production ran for eighteen years.
So far the musical has been presented in more than 30 countries throughout the world, it has been translated into more than 20 languages and viewed by more than 50 million people worldwide. It won numerous awards, including Best Musical at both the Laurence Olivier Awards and the Tony Awards.
The ‘’Cats’’ musical is also famous for being the first one to introduce the moment of interactivity with the audience so it is no surprise that it has the most fanatical fans.
Only 4,000 people in Zagreb will be able to see this spectacle live due to the capacity limitation of the Arena Zagreb hall. Tickets range from 189 to 499 Kunas.
