Remaking of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical called “Cats” is both easy and difficult. On the one hand, the content of this musical can be conveyed in a few words, on the other, a detailed description of the play, in which words, music, and dance intertwine in the closest way, turns out to be too long and boring and does not give due to a bright and dynamic performance. If you want to know when does Cats come out, then see the topic below.
In the 20th century, it was difficult to surprise the listener. However, the musical became popular. The musical “Cats” has become a popular piece on many theater stages. This sincere and naive production has conquered the hearts of viewers around the world. The brilliance of the show, the irregular plot, and amazing music, this is what makes a person fall in love with “Cats.”
Webber wrote the musical “Cats” based on the collection of children’s poetry by T.S. Eliot. The premiere took place on May 11, 1981, on the stage of the New London Theater, and on October 7, 1982, on Broadway.
By 1994, the musical had collected 2 billion dollars worldwide. The musical has been translated into 15 languages and has been shown in more than 30 countries. The musical was the longest Broadway show that lasted from 1997 to 2006 until it was preceded by the Phantom of the Opera.
Development and creators
Amblimation planned to make an animated movie adaptation in 1990 but the idea was abandoned due to the closure of the studio. At the end of 2013, Webber stated that Universal Studios plans to revive the project. It should be noted that the studio acquired a film adaptation rights to “Cats” a long time ago. In 2016, it became known that the Universal Studios negotiates with Tom Hooper to direct the movie. In 2016, he was confirmed as the director.
