First pictures of Kerry Ellis as Grizabella in Cats

First images have been released of Kerry Ellis as Grizabella in Cats at the London Palladium. Check out the images below (click picture to enlarge). Ellis took over as Grizabella from Nicole Scherzinger earlier this week. The musical runs until 25th April 2015.

Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, Cats returned to the West End last year with the original creative team - Trevor Nunn, Gillian Lynne, John Napier and Andrew Lloyd Webber - reunited for the Palladium run.

As well as being the first British actress to play Elphaba in the West End and Broadway productions of Wicked, Ellis' theatre credits include: creating the role of Meat in We Will Rock You (Dominion) and playing Nancy in Oliver (Drury Lane), Fantine in Les Miserables (Queen’s), Ellen in Miss Saigon (UK Tour), Beth in War of the Worlds (World Arena Tour), Svetlana Sergievsky in Chess opposite Idina Menzel (Royal Albert Hall) and Mimi in RENT (Concert Tour), as well as West End Men (Vaudeville) and Tell Me on a Sunday (RCCL). She also famously understudied Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady (National/Drury Lane).
