You’ve gotta love a bit of Cats. Old Cameron Mackintosh is on a roll this year, and the big budget producer will be bringing the Andrew Lloyd Webber classic – one of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history – back to the Empire this winter.
It’ll be in town from November 26 to December 7.
Based on the poems of TS Elliot, Cats continues to be a worldwide musical phenomenon; they claim it has been seen by over 50 million people in more than 300 cities in 26 countries around the world, and has been performed in at least 10 different languages. Cats was last seen in the UK in 2007 – where does the time go – and will be at least the fourth major tour of an Andrew Lloyd Webber show in Liverpool this year, following on from last month’s lavish Phantom of the Opera; Evita, which comes back to the Empire in June with Marti Pellow as Che; and the autumn return of the Jesus Christ Superstar arena tour.
Tickets go on sale today, available from Liverpool Empire Box Office, by calling 0845 871 3017, online.
