Post It's OFFICIAL! CATS TO REVIVE IN LONDON IN 2013!!
Here is the link to the news article.

Didn't know if this was new news to anyone yet. The news came out 2 days ago.

Quote:
He concedes that no Really Useful production is slated for London until the "Cats" revival with Cameron Mackintosh in 2013.


Quote:
And there's a Mandarin production of "Cats" opening next year in a prestigious new opera house in Guangzhou, China.


So I'm going to be making some overseas trips in a few years! Cannot wait! I hope it goes back into the New London it's original "home!" I believe that this will really happen as Mark Dooley is getting plans together for me somehow to get over there for the show! Bless you, Mark!!!

well I wouldn't go as far as saying it's confirmed.
they have been planning revivals for years now. 2-3 years ago they even had inofficial castings.
has there been a revival yet?
no.
I will believe it when I see the posters advertising for tickets.

planning and actually happening are 2 different things.
as much as I'd love cats to be back in London.

I'm really hoping Cats will come back in London ! 2013 would be great... but I will have to read a real confirmation, like a press release from RUG, to believe it!

*Flails*

I live in London! I can go see it again! If only I had more dance training. Oh well... they'll still need staff.

...How young a face can Grizabella get away with? :lol:

Well, I'm certainly not going to give up hope. If there is a London revival, there could be a Bway revival in a few short years from now. Troika would have to close but if Bway was a close second on that I could live with something major happening. Mark has been in talks with RUG about certain things and his word is good.

Not going to give up hope just yet. Going on over 11 years since the show closed. 13-15 mark is a good time for a revival. Even if it only runs two years or less.

Such a Negative Nellie in our midst. I choose to remain positive!

Looks like I know what I'll be auditioning for in the next couple of years ;D
Lets hope my (then) 14 years of dance training, 5 years of drama, two years of singing and a years of tap will get me!Thank goodness I'll be in London at the time anyway :P

Yes! New London theatre, definitely! ^.^
But I wouldn'ts say no to the Aldephi either :3

Lets hope it comes back!

I'm the other way around. I've been singing and acting for as long as I can remember, but I don't have so much on the dance side. Stupid expensive stage schools. I hope you get a part anyway. :mrgreen:

Dont sell the skin before the bear is shoot, this is only rumours and its still way to early stage to say its official, its may be an official RUG rumour but its still a rumour untill theyre open for ticket sales. That is if you dont know anything we dont, VTWC.

But with that said I would definately do more than a few London trips is there is a reviewal. *keeps fingers crossed*

although i really hoped that was going to happen, i am rather concerned there won't be a London revival soon... all the big productions that have been running over the last years, were touring productions. i think for producers it's much easier to attract audiences when the show is coming near their hometown.
