Cats played in Berlin from 20th October 2002 - 30th January 2004.

After Hamburg and Stuttgart, Berlin was the third German production of the show. The costumes were developed from the Hamburg/Stuttgart designs and began to show UK design influences, while they used the UK designs for the wigs and make-up. For Berlin, the show was retranslated by Michael Kunze (who wrote the 80's Vienna translation) and the score as well as the choreography was updated and very similar to the final London version. Berlin was the first German version to include Electra. It was the first German production that had Chrissie Cartwright as Associate Director.

Berlin used the NAP 15 set, which had already been used in Antwerp (Belgium) and Stuttgart before.

It was not the first time Cats played in Berlin. The 1987 Vienna cast previously performed at the Komische Oper in East-Berlin as a short guest appearance during the Vienna summer break.
