Cats, the fourth longest-running musical on Broadway, is back! We’re not kitten.
The famous Broadway show ended back in September of 2000 but this summer Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical will see itself back in the spotlight. Original director Trevor Nunn will bring the show to the Neil Simon Theatre in New York.
Last year the show was revived in London and starred Nicole Scherzinger as Grizabella the ‘glamour cat’ and strong female lead.We’ll admit Scherzinger makes a fine feline. We’re looking forward to seeing who plays Mr. Mistoffelees and Rum Tum Tugger.
Our human with the long hair seems really excited by this news, but we don’t know why. How is this any different than watching us prance around the house?
Cats previews begin July 14 and the show will open August 2.
