Cats is based on T. S. Eliot’s ‘Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats’, and first premiered in London’s West End back in 1981.
Musical theatre icon and Cats composer Andrew Lloyd Webber is full of praise for his new leading lady.
“Leona has one of the greatest voices of her generation. We are all hugely excited about working with her.”
Leona recently spoke to The Guardian about the show and explained what it means to her.
“The show’s got a lot of heart. Grizabella’s someone that’s been outcast and the storyline is about acceptance and love.
You can see Leona star as Grizabella in Cats The Musical at the Neil Simon Theatre until October 2016.
