CATS returns to The London Palladium
Don’t miss the return of the critically acclaimed, 2015 Olivier award-nominated, new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats at the London Palladium for a strictly limited season from 23 October 2015 to 2 January 2016, starring the Queen of British Soul Beverley Knight as Grizabella.
Following last year’s sell-out season in the West End, this new production of the “groundbreaking musical” (Daily Express) is absolutely “perfect for the festive season” (Daily Telegraph) and truly gives Cats a new life for a new generation.
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.
With “timeless music, spectacular sets and a superb cast” (Daily Mirror), breathtaking choreography and of course the unforgettable ‘Memory’, Cats is a magical musical like no other.
A new life for a new generation!
Please note Beverley Knight will not perform 1, 11, 16 & 17 December 2015, the role of Grizabella will be played by the understudy.
