This just in: Cats returning to Broadway

In an unsurprising twist of events, Andrew Lloyd Webber doesn’t have enough money, apparently, and Cats will be making its revival debut this summer.

The feline phenomenon originally ran on Broadway from October 1982 to September 2000 at the Winter Garden Theatre. It will return, beginning previews in July, to the Neil Simon Theatre. This will mean Webber has three shows on Broadway at the same time (in addition to Phantom and School of Rock). It made over $366 million and won seven Tony awards, including Best Musical.

Please, lord, don’t let Love Never Dies (the awful sequel to Phantom) be next.
