B : Cats
Two more weeks have been added to the Manila run of 'Cats,'' one of the longest-running shows in West End and on Broadway, due to popular demand.
The musical, presented by David Ian Productions, will now be staged at The Theatre at Solaire from November 6 to December 1.
Reprising the lead role of Grizabella is theater veteran Joanna Ampil, who has starred in West End musicals such as 'Miss Saigon,' 'Jesus Christ Superstar,' and 'Avenue Q.'
While she has performed in 'Cats' in other countries, this will be her first show as Grizabella in Manila.
'We've performed in China and Hong Kong and it was very well-received… I’ve always wanted to bring 'Cats' to Manila and we finally have the chance, so I’m really excited. I'm nervous also, but more excited,' the West End star said in a press conference on Thursday.
'Cats' was first staged in Manila back in 2010, with Tony Award winner Lea Salonga taking on the role of Grizabella.
