Author News DeskNews Desk, January 28th, 2019

Andrew Lloyd Webber's feline musical is on the road!

After a welcomed return to Broadway in 2016 Andrew Lloyd Webber's feline hit, Cats has hit the road on its national tour! Kicking off in Providence on January 22, take a look at the cast in action in these newly released production images.

The cast includes McGee Maddox as Bill Bailey/Rum Tum Tigger, Keri Rene Fuller as Grizabella, Tion Gaston as Mistoffelees, John Logan as Plato/Macavity, Ethan Saviet as Skimbleshanks and Michael Nase as Victor/Old Deuteronomy.

The musical is written by Andrew Lloyd Webber as is produced by Cameron Mackintosh. Cats retains direction by Trevor Nunn and Choreography by Gillian Lyne but features some updates by Andy Blankenbuehler.

What is Cats about?

Once a year, a local tribe of street cats, all with their own distinct names and personalities, come together for the legendary "Jellicle Ball". Here they entertain each other, tell stories, and listen to wisdom given by their elderly and respected leader, Old Deuteronomy.

Halfway through, their gathering is interrupted by the tattered and torn Grizabella. Repulsed by her sorry state, the Jellicle Cats shun her and chase her off, despite the pleas of Old Deuteronomy to show compassion. But what happens when their beloved leader is catnapped by the dastardly master-cat of crime, MacAvity (think a feline version of Moriarty!)? Will the Jellicle cats be able to save him? And WHO is the mysterious Mr. Mistoffelees?
