On Monday, March 14th, 1985, at 8:00 p.m. in the Elgin Theatre, an amazing event took place. In a venue that hadn't been used for live theatre in sixty years, the hit Broadway show CATS opened with an all-Canadian cast and crew. It took the City of Toronto by storm for two years and then took over the entire country for two years while the Elgin Theatre was being restored to its original glory. After touring coast to coast, CATS returned to sell-out crowds at Massey Hall. Five years...what a trip!
