Post Broadway CATS: News and Info
Just wanted to create a thread where people can post the latest CATS Broadway news. Internet articles, TV show clips, YouTubes, that sort of thing.

Will add to this thread later on this week as the Previews start.

Article about Leona Lewis talking about playing Grizabella from Playbill.com.

I have a lot of layers, with thigh-high boots and a huge coat, which, just in case, I did make sure was faux fur. In fact, there’s no fur in any of the costumes.


Well, I thought that Griz's coat was always made of rabbit fur, at least the one that I own from Bway is made of that material. Perhaps they've changed the newer coats to be more animal friendly? Yes, there is no fur IN the costumes, (unitards, tails) but the wigs are made of Yak Hair so.... :-"

Some small news about changes:

Growltiger number has been cut! Now the Peke's and Pollicles number is Gus' reminisces. Gus plays the part of Rumpus Cat? Okayyyy....

Tugger number is the old one with some new dance changes.

Misto number has new dance changes as well. Tap has changes.

The show has been shorted to an hour for each Act.

More as I get them...

Also, there is a bootleg audio of the 1st Preview night that I'm trying to get. Looking all over for it to trade. Will find it eventually. Can't wait to hear the changed numbers and extra music.

CATS Merchandise Shop

Terribly disappointed in the lack of decent merch for the Bway show! After seeing all the goodies that Australia got last year as well as the years of awesome Japanese stuff, this is pretty pathetic! Was hoping for at least some unique, never before seen items. The only good thing was the addition of the cute CATS plush doll. I already got that a few weeks ago. The only unique item. To no avail. The US gets crapped on again.

I think that Leona Lewis has the best face for the new look of Grizabella. She looks beautiful!

Yes, but should Grizabella be so beautiful?
