25 years of Cats in Japan!

Tonight’s performance of _Cats_ at Tokyo’s Cats Theater in Gotanda will mark the 25th anniversary of the musical in Japan.

In a special message to cast and crew Andrew Lloyd Webber said: “Omedetou gozaimasu to everyone involved with _Cats_ in Japan. 25 years – what a fantastic achievement”.

The show premiered in 1983 with Akiko Kuno playing Grizabella and Takanori Yamamoto playing the part of Old Deuteronomy.
