Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, Cats returned to the West End in December last year in a sell-out season reuniting the original creative team – Director Trevor Nunn, Associate Director and Choreographer Gillian Lynne, Designer John Napier and Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber. Previously Nicole Scherzinger and then Kerry Ellis played the role of Grizabella at the Palladium. Jane McDonald recently played the role of Grizabella in an 8 week season at Blackpool Opera House.
