Nicole gets a special visitor!

Grizabella had a visit from Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber at a preview performance of Cats at the London Palladium!

The Daily Mail captured the moment backstage while Nicole was in full Grizabella costume.


 

Nicole Scherzinger makes her West End debut in the starring role of Grizabella, as Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-breaking musical Cats returns to the West End for a strictly limited 12 week run at the London Palladium.


Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, it received its world premiere at the New London Theatre in 1981 where it played for 21 record-breaking years and almost 9,000 performancesm becoming one of the longest-running shows in West End ever, a feat it duplicated on Broadway.


Cats is set on the night that the Jellicle Cats meet for the Jellicle Ball and folds fantasy, drama and romance into the telling of its tale.


The cats have gathered from far and wide so that their father figure Old Deuteronomy can choose the one most deserving of making the journey up to the ‘Heaviside Lair’. Each musical number is the story of a different cat, in many cases taken verbatim from Eliot.


Nicole Scherzinger will perform the role of Grizabella from 6 December 2014 – 7 February 2015. Nicole will NOT perform on 8, 30, 31 December 2014 and 1 January 2015, subject to illness and holidays. The appearance of any particular artist cannot be guaranteed.
