Audiences and critics alike are rediscovering this beloved musical with breathtaking music, including one of the most treasured songs in musical theater—“Memory.” Winner of 7 Tony Awards® including Best Musical, Cats tells the story of one magical night when an extraordinary tribe of cats gathers for its annual ball to rejoice and decide which cat will be reborn. The original score by Andrew Lloyd Webber (The Phantom of the Opera, School of Rock, Sunset Boulevard), original scenic and costume design by John Napier (Les Misérables), all-new lighting design by Natasha Katz (Aladdin), all-new sound design by Mick Potter, new choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton) based on the original choreography by Gillian Lynne (Phantom), and direction by Trevor Nunn (Les Misérables) make this production a new Cats for a new generation!

Pre-Performance Insights

Available only for the Saturday, May 9 evening performance.

The State Theatre’s Pre-Performance Insights give our Broadway Series audiences new ways to look at theater in general, as well as a richer understanding of the show itself. Led by Rutgers University theater professor Christopher Cartmill, along with special guests, these entertaining talks are sure to make an evening at the State Theatre an even more enjoyable and memorable experience.

Pre-Performance Insights take place at 7:15 before the Saturday evening performances of shows in our Broadway Series. Attendance is free of charge for ticketholders to that night’s performance; no reservation or additional ticket is required. Pre-Performance Insights take place on the second floor of State Theatre New Jersey. There is no elevator access to this space.
