Cats opened in the Théâtre de Paris February 23, 1989 and ran until April 29, 1990.
Like the Amsterdam production, the Paris production was staged by John Yost who was the Resident Director of the Vienna production. The production was completely based on the Vienna show, including all the specifics from Vienna like the shortened "Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer" number and the mute Mistoffelees. Also the costumes and stage design were similar to the ones from Amsterdam and Vienna.
