Fri, Mar 09, 2018 - Page 15

After a wait of eight years, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s classic musical “Cats” is returning to Taiwan. This time, fans also have the inclusion of “Phantom” to look forward to, as Brad Little, the lead in “Phantom of the Opera,” and who has many fans in Taiwan, is to join the round-the-island tour.

“Cats” — along with “Phantom of the Opera,” “Les Miserables” and “Miss Saigon” — are the world’s top four musicals. The show kicked off last week at the National Taichung Theater, and moves to the Tainan Cultural Center this week and to the National Taiwan University Sports Center in Taipei next week.

“Evita,” another of Webber’s hit shows, will also come to the National Theater in Taipei late next month. The show concentrates on the short but dramatic life of legendary Eva Peron, who was first lady of Argentina. Tickets are available through Kuang Hong Arts Management Incorporation’s Web site at www.kham.com.tw, or from Hi-Life and OK Mart convenience store chains.
