Since its world premiere, CATS has been featured in more than 30 countries, has been translated into 15 languages, and has seen more than 73 million people around the world. Originally directed by Trevor Nunn with choreography and collaborative guidance by Gillian Lynne, John Napier's set design and costume design, David Hersey's lighting design and Abe Jacob Jacob's design, CATS opened in 1981 in West End. He debuted at Broadway in 1982 where he won seven Tony awards including Best Musical. And the original London and Broadway recordings won the Grammy Award for Best Album. CATS hit the song "Memory" by more than 150 artists from Barbra Streisanda and Johnny Mathis in Liberace and Barry Manilow.

The original Broadway production was closed on September 10, 2000, and is currently the fourth longest show in Broadway history. This marks the first tour for the first time in Broadway's revival of iconic music.
