Nicole Scherzinger is set to make her West End stage debut in the revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical Cats in December.
The former Pussycat Dolls singer will star as feline Grizabella, the role made famous by Elaine Paige. The original team of director Trevor Nunn, choreographer Gillian Lynne and composer Lloyd Webber are reuniting to bring the musical back for a limited London run.
Scherzinger said, “I am really thrilled to be making my West End debut in such an iconic show and I couldn’t be more excited. To have the opportunity to work with Andrew, Trevor and Gillian is a dream come true. I grew up listening to Andrew’s extraordinary music and was lucky enough, a couple of years ago, to recorded Cats’ beautiful song Memory. Andrew’s score is breathtaking and I am truly honoured to have been asked to take part in what I know will be a very special time in my career. I can’t wait to begin rehearsals.”
The revival will run from 6 December (14) to 7 February (15) at the London Palladium theatre.
