Andrew Lloyd Webber Says Cats Will Return to Broadway

Jan 05, 2015

Andrew Lloyd Webber wasn't pussyfooting around when he announced Monday that his hit musical Cats will return to Broadway.

Webber did not specify run dates or divulge further details about a New York production, though he did say he hopes to replicate the success of a recent revival of the musical in London's West End, after a 10 year hiatus, the Guardian reports.

Webber added that he "greatly hoped" to introduce U.S. audiences to the newest performer in star role of Grizabellar, Nicole Scherzinger, a former singer for the Pussycat Dolls.

“She is what you might call an American theater babe," Webber said of Scherzinger. "I do believe she is the most exciting musical theater artist I have found – well, that I have worked with – in very, very many years. I really do."

Let the memory live again.
