'Cats' Musical Wiki

A new Asian tour of Cats started in 2014, produced by Seol and Company. It toured South Korea in 2014 before touring other Asian countries in 2015.

Production Specifics

The 2015 season started with a three-week run in Singapore at the Grand Theatre at Marina Bay Sands (where it is the third Andrew Lloyd Webber musical since 2013 - these include Phantom of the Opera and Starlight Express).

Stylistically, the production was the Australian led version of the show. Many of the costumes had already been used in the Asia-Pacific touring production; also the production team was the same. James Cooper and Brent Osborne are former members of the Asia-Pacific cast; Angela Kilian was in the South African cast in 2004, Juan Jackson was part of the 1999 Circus tour and Matthew Jessner was Munkustrap in Vienna, Paris and on the Euro Tour. Richard Woodford, who played Bustopher and Gus in this production, played Victor and covered the roles of Munkustrap, Asparagus and Old Deuteronomy in the London production.
