Andrew Lloyd Webber’s mega-hit musical Cats returns to the West End and the London Palladium in early December 2014, starring Nicole Scherzinger (The Pussycat Dolls) in her West End stage debut as Grizabella.
Cats first opened in 1981 and ran for 21 record-breaking years and has since been translated into 10 languages and almost 9,000 performances becoming one of the longest-running shows in West End ever.
The plot was inspired by T.S Eliot's 'Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats' written in 1939, but in this new updated version of Cats the cat Rum Tum Tugger will be turned into a hip-hop cat as Andrew Lloyd Webber revamps his hit show for a return to London's West End.
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.
