Pussycat Dolls frontwoman Nicole Scherzinger will make her West End debut in the upcoming holiday-season engagement of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Cats. The production will begin its run at the London Palladium on December 6, with a press opening night set for December 11.

The revival reunites the show's original creative team, led by director Trevor Nunn, associate director and choreographer Gillian Lynne, and designer John Napier. The record-breaking musical is inspired by T.S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats.

Scherzinger will play Grizabella, the former glamour cat who sings the well-known ballad "Memory." She joins a cast that also includes Nicholas Pound (Old Deuteronomy), Callum Train (Munkustrap), Zizi Strallen (Dememter), and others.
