Kerry Ellis has taken over the role of Grizabella in Cats as Nicole Sherzinger steps down from the role. Cats is now booking until 25th April 2015.
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.
Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, Cats returned to the West End last month with the original creative team – Director Trevor Nunn, Associate Director and Choreographer Gillian Lynne, Designer John Napier and Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber – reunited for the Palladium run.
Due to extraordinary public demand, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record breaking Cats has announced the release of over 100,000 new tickets for sale. Now booking at the London Palladium to 25 April 2015, tickets for Cats are from £20 with top price seats at £59.50 and children’s tickets at half price for Monday to Thursday performances (see listings information below).
