Oscar®-winning director Tom Hooper transforms Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-shattering stage musical into a breakthrough cinematic event. With a star-studded cast, and introducing Royal Ballet principal dancer Francesca Hayward in her feature film debut, the film reimagines the musical for a new generation with spectacular production design, state-of-the-art technology, and dance styles ranging from classical ballet to contemporary, hip-hop to jazz, street dance to tap.
One of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history, the stage musical Cats (based on Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot) is one of the most successful musicals of all time. It received its world premiere at the New London Theatre in 1981, where it played for 21 years and earned the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for 'Best Musical'. In 1983, the Broadway production became the recipient of seven Tony Awards, including 'Best Musical', and ran for an extraordinary 18 years.
Since opening in London in 1981, Cats has continuously appeared on stage around the globe, to date having played to 81 million people in more than 50 countries and in 19 languages.
