“Cats” is still on Broadway? (Not a joke question. Is it the longest-running show?)
It closed on September 10, 2000. (I just got a scanner, so I’ve been scanning old photographs today.)
When it closed, it was the longest-running show in Broadway history with a total of 7,485 performances. It has since been surpassed by The Phantom of the Opera, which is still running. If the revival of Chicago keeps running for about another three years, it will be the next to pass Cats. Chicago is the longest-running revival in Broadway history. If you’re all that curious, Wikipedia has a seemingly accurate list of the 100 longest running shows in Broadway history.
