Leona Lewis 'Thrilled' to Make Broadway Debut in 'Cats'
Leona Lewis smiles for the cameras as she arrives at Heathrow airport on Friday (May 27) in London, England.
The 31-year-old pop singer recently confirmed that she will be starring as Grizabella in the upcoming Broadway revival of Cats after Nicole Scherzinger turned down the part.
“I will never forget seeing [Cats] as a little girl and how blown away I was by the magical experience of it,” Leona said in a statement (via Rolling Stone). “I am beyond thrilled for my Broadway debut to be in such an iconic show.”
The musical’s official opening is set for July 31 at the Neil Simon Theatre in New York City.
