Will Cats Yield Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre to Angela Lansbury?
It seems that the Shuberts--owners of the Winter Garden Theater, which has been home to Cats since 1982--wanted to close the show last month, and informed Andrew Lloyd Webber of their plan as a courtesy. Webber called a meeting with management that reportedly became acrimonious in the extreme. The Shuberts allowed the show to stay open, but now a definite closing date has been set for June 25, 2000. Cats has been running at a loss for some time now.
