'Cats' Musical Wiki
Advertisement

Cats originally ran on Broadway from 1982 to 2000. It would seem that, rather than regular annual or biannual cast changes, actors were employed on rolling contracts so the cast changed gradually over time.

Note: This page uses the Day-Month-Year (DD/MM/YY) date format.
