Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-breaking Broadway musical, CATS made history once again when internet sensation,Grumpy Cat became the first genuine feline to join the cast. Grumpy Cat, the media personality, performer and New York Times best-selling author, made her Broadway debut (for one night only) alongside the cast on stage at the Neil Simon Theatre (250 W 52nd Street) Friday, September 30, 2016.
“Being selected as the first real cat to perform in CATS on Broadway was an honor. I hated it,” said Grumpy Cat about her impending Broadway debut. “If I’m really being honest, I would have preferred to play the Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera.”
“Old Deuteronomy,” the leader of cats (played by Quentin Earl Darrington), presented Grumpy Cat with a certificate making her an honorary, Jellicle Cat before a sold-out audience at the smash hit Broadway show.
