Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical “Cats” is returning to Broadway.

Producers The Shubert Organization and The Nederlander Organization announced the revival of the classic Broadway show on Thursday, according to the Hollywood Reporter.  Previews start July 14 and opening night is Aug. 2

“Cats” left the stage in 2000 after almost 18 years and is the fourth longest running show in Broadway history. During its run, the show won seven Tony awards.

“Cats” joins Webber’s other two returning musicals “School of Rock” and “Phantom of the Opera.” Webber will then have three of his musicals running simultaneously.

Andy Blankenbuehler will be choreographer, Natasha Katz will be lighting designer and John Napier will work on scenic and costume designs.

Casting has not yet been announced.
