CATS is the longest running, most popular, North American Touring Production in history! There's no better way to introduce your family to the wonders of live theatre than with the magic, the mystery, the memory of CATS. What began as a musical about cats, after Andrew Lloyd Webber picked up a book of poems in an airport bookshop, has become one of the longest running shows in Broadway's history. Winner of seven Tony Awards including Best Musical, CATSfeatures 20 of Andrew Lloyd Webber's timeless melodies, including the hit song "Memory."


Grand Rapid's engagement is welcomed by Northern Trust and Meijer, Inc.
