(Xinhua)The legendary musical "Cats" is bound for its third Chinese tour. Just one year after "Cats" last extensive tour around China, this Tony Award winning production is going to whirl into more Chinese cities. The contract was signed at the VIP Hall of Beijing's Exhibition Center Theatre on Wednesday afternoon.

Representatives from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Really Useful Company sealed the deal with the Chinese sponsors of the upcoming "Cats" tour.

The new tour will begin in September in China and will last three months. "Cats" is scheduled to perform in six cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Hangzhou, Nanjing and Chongqing. "Cats" will be making its debut in all of these Chinese cities except for Beijing and Shanghai.

West End in 1981. 

"Cats" had a 53-show run in Shanghai in March, 2003. And in April, 2004 it made its debut in Beijing playing eight sold-out shows. At the end of 2007, a top-notch performing lineup from Australia brought Andrew Lloyd Webber's most famous musical to eight cities around China.

The Managing Director of The Really Useful Company Asia Pacific says that despite the economic downturn, they are upbeat about the Asian market.
