'Cats' Musical Wiki

This is the gallery for the character of Rumpus Cat: Usually played by Alonzo, Plato or George. The Broadway Revival in 2016 re-framed Rumpus Cat's scene "The Awefull Battle of the Pekes and the Pollicles" as Gus' performance in act 2 rather than Munkustrap's entertainment for Old Deuteronomy, with Gus playing Rumpus Cat. This version is also used for the US Tour 6 and the UK/International tour from 2017 onwards.

The Japanese production uses Rumpus Cat as an ensemble character. Until 2000 he was yellowish in colour; since 2000 he resembles the black and white Alonzo. He puts on a different "superhero" costume for "The Awefull Battle of the Pekes and the Pollicles".
