WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
LET THE MEMORY LIVE AGAIN
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-breaking musical CATS returns to the West End for a strictly limited 12-week run at the London Palladium starring Nicole Scherzinger (until 7 Feb 2015), making her West End stage debut as Grizabella. Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, the original creative team - Director Trevor Nunn, Associate Director and Choreographer Gillian Lynne, Designer John Napier and Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber - are reunited to bring CATS back to the West End this Christmas.
On just one special night of the year, all Jellicle cats meet at the Jellicle Ball where Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, makes the Jellicle choice and announces which of them will go up to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.
One of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history, CATS has been seen by over 55 million people and enchanted audiences in over 300 cities around the world. With an amazing musical score that includes the timeless “Memory”, spectacular set designs, stunning costumes and breathtaking choreography, now you too have the chance to experience this legendary musical phenomenon.
CATS was originally produced by Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group Limited.
Nicole Scherzinger will perform the role of Grizabella from 6 December 2014 – 7 February 2015 except at performances on 8, 30, 31 December 2014 and 1 January 2015, subject to illness and holidays. The appearance of any particular artist cannot be guaranteed.
