Israel Musicals Production of CATS, 2012

Andrew Lloyd Webber's classic

"Rosa Howden and Yisrael Lutnick have preserved the authenticity of the original show in this English language production. The impressive cast of 20 singers and dancers that never stop moving, the makeup and costumes and small orchestra bring a taste of Broadway here."   Achbar Ha'ir
"The purpose of this note was just to say congratulations to you, the team and the great enthusiastic cast for a magnificent performance this evening. You all manage to capture so much of the vitality and spirit of the original. Well done. Keep up your quality and standards.   C.M., Jerusalem, one of the Angels of the original 1981 production of Cats

Israel Musicals CATS

The Show and The Cast and Crew

We are proud to have presented the first English production of CATS, the second longest running show in Broadway history, in Israel. Featuring a cast with professional singers and dancers and live orchestra, this show was a song and dance extravaganza. To the poetry of "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats" by T.S. Eliot, Andrew Lloyd Webber composed a score that rocks and soars, with hits such as Macavity, Old Deuteronomy and, of course, Memory.

Cats was performed during the winter of 2012, in Jerusalem, Givatayim, Kfar Saba and Modiin.
