first_img Cats View Comments Related Shows Star Files Leona Lewis(Photo: Angela Weiss/Getty Images)center_img Show Closed This production ended its run on Dec. 30, 2017 The naming of cats is a difficult matter and it would seem that this is especially true in the case of Grizabella in the Broadway revival of Cats. After Nicole Scherzinger dropped out of playing the glamour cat, it’s now reported that Leona Lewis is eyeing the role. A source told the Daily Star: “Leona is first in line for the job if she wants it.”The production, directed by Trevor Nunn and choreographed by Hamilton’s Andy Blankenbuehler, will begin preview performances at the Neil Simon Theatre on July 14. Opening night is set for July 31.Lewis won the third series of the U.K.’s The X Factor in 2006; she is the second best-selling act to have emerged from the franchise, having sold 20 million records worldwide, and is a seven-time Brit Award and three-time Grammy Award nominee. Lewis is renowned for her massive four octave mezzo-soprano vocal range, power, technical control and, especially, her frequent use of the falsetto register. Ironically Scherzinger is not doing Cats so she can be a judge on the latest season of X Factor.Lewis would join a cast that will include Tyler Hanes as Rum Tum Tugger, Ricky Ubeda as Mistoffelees, Quentin Earl Darrington as Old Deuteronomy, Eloise Kropp as Jennyannydots/Gumbie, Giuseppe Bausilio as Carbucketty, Jeremy Davis as Skimbleshanks, Kim Faure as Demeter, Sara Jean Ford as Jellylorum, Lili Froehlich as Electra, Daniel Gaymon as Macavity, Shonica Gooden as Rumpleteazer, Christopher Gurr as Gus/Bustopher Jones, Andy Huntington Jones as Munkustrap, Kolton Krouse as Tumblebrutus, Jess LeProtto as Mungojerrie, Georgina Pazcoguin as Victoria, Emily Pynenburg as Cassandra, Arianna Rosario as Sillabub, Ahmad Simmons as Alonzo, Christine Cornish Smith as Bombalurina, Corey Snide as Coricopat, Emily Tate as Tantomile and Sharrod Williams as Pouncival.Featuring a score by Lloyd Webber and lyrics by T.S. Eliot, Trevor Nunn and Richard Stilgoe, Cats follows a clowder of jellicles and each cat’s quest to be selected to ascend to the Heaviside Layer. The show, based on Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, ran for 21 years in London and 18 years on Broadway, where it won seven Tony Awards including Best Musical. This production will be the first Main Stem revival.Remind yourself why Lloyd Webber would want Lewis to sing “Memory” below. Leona Lewislast_img read more

first_img UK newspapers The Times and The Guardian have reported that the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) will seek to open a further ‘12-week consultation period’ for its ongoing review of FOBTs wagering levels.At present, it appears that DCMS will delay its judgement on whether to reduce FOBTs wagering from £100 max-bet to the reported options of £50, £20 or £2 per spinAs yet, DCMS has not officially confirmed the extended consultation period, however, UK media have stated that stakeholders close to the department have confirmed that DCMS will now seek further assistance on its FOBTs review.Further to the consultation period, UK media reports that DCMS has advised industry stakeholders not to pursue a judicial review to try and block its final decision.The government’s delayed triennial industry review has become a high-stakes battle for a number of UK betting stakeholders, who have a significant exposure to FOBTs as a key revenue-generating channel.Industry governance is in-acceptance, that the UK government will reduce the current £100 (per 20 seconds) max-bet level on machine betting, but wish to avoid ‘nightmare scenario’ of a reduction to under £20.Throughout 2017, betting leadership has petitioned the government that a below £20 limit will jeopardise the entire UK retail betting sector, forcing the industry to drastically scale down its betting shop portfolio.Not all betting leaders are against the governments FOBTs judgement. Last September, outgoing Paddy Power Betfair Group CEO Breon Corcoran was reported to have sent a letter to UK Minister for Sports Tracey Crouch stating that FOBTs had become a ‘toxic issue’ for the sector and that a drastic cut in machine betting levels was needed in order to quell ‘societal concerns’.Corcoran and Paddy Power Betfair would be criticised for the DCMS letter, with industry stakeholders’ claiming that the FTSE operator was seeking to hijack the triennial review in order to fulfil its UK expansion ambitions.From an investor perspective, speculation is running rife throughout UK betting, with city analysts detailing that a drastic cut in FOBTs wagering will likely lead to a new round of sector consolidation and M&A activity.
