“I am absolutely thrilled to be bringing Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical Cats to Doha. Cats is truly one of the greatest musicals of all time and I cannot wait to present this incredible production at the QNCC Theatre at the end of this week,’ said David Ian, producer of Cats for David Ian Productions.
This original production is one of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history, seen by more than 73mn people worldwide. Cats has enchanted audiences in more than 300 cities around the world.
The musical had its world premiere in 1981 at the New London Theatre where it played for almost 9,000 performances. The show then returned to the West End in 2014 reuniting the original creative team, director Trevor Nunn, associate director and choreographer Gillian Lynne, designer John Napier and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.
The classic Lloyd Webber score includes Memory, which has been recorded by more than 150 artistes from Barbra Streisand and Johnny Mathis to Liberace.
