Cats out the bag - new show puts felines centre stage?

Never mind what's on stage, it's all about cats on stage at the Broadway Theatre in Catford, where a new revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's feline musical is in the pipeline featuring a cast of melodic moggies.

The catalyst for this extravaganza came from the creative team's pussuit of a theatrical experience more genuine to poet TS Elliot's original intentions.

Producer Simon Ease told Whatsonstage.com: "Following the recent craze of putting pets on stage, we've simply taken it one step further.

"Frankly, the West End should stop pussyfooting around and leave it to the real pros - this is going to be the ultimate meowsical experience."

Auditions are already underway, with budding Mr Mistoffelees' and Macavitys hoping to scratch their mark on theatre history. "We're on the lookout for cats with pitch-purrfect tuna-ing," added Ease.
