no title

Something must be wrong with his catnip…

Andrew Lloyd Webber isn't exactly pretending to be the easiest thespian to work with right about now, but his latest controversy is downright catty!

As you may have heard, the team over at Theater80 in New York are currently playing Katdashians: Break The Musical — an off-Broadway KUWTK-inspired take on the iconic musical Cats.

However, we're now hearing reports that following a review in The New York Times on Sunday, ALW went ahead and threatened the parody with legal action!

Katdashians co-creator Tobly McSmith says the production was "shocked" to learn Andrew was offended by the unauthorized musical parodying six of his original songs:

Nicole Scherzinger Burns Her Broadway Bridges, Ditching Cats For X Factor… And Andrew Lloyd Webber Is Absolutely FURIOUS!

no title

We love her… but this is a TERRIBLE career move!

Nicole Scherzinger may be most well-known as the former lead singer of The Pussycat Dolls, but she's managed to make a name for herself in the world of Broadway thanks to her impeccable voice.

And it sure doesn't hurt that Andrew Lloyd Webber himself is her biggest supporter having utilized her numerous times as Christine in Phantom of the Opera.

Unfortunately, it seems as though Nicole isn't too appreciative of the legend taking a chance on a pop star because she just chose X Factor over one of the most famous musicals of all time!

Apparently, Nicky was supposed to begin rehearsals for Cats on Broadway next week but decided last minute to return to the UK singing competition now that Cheryl, Rita Ora, and Nick Grimshaw have all quit!

The Right Honourable Lord Webber is rightfully pissed because he actually believed she was set to win the Tony Award for her role as Grizabella in 2017, saying:

Throwback Thursday! Watch Rita Ora Audition For Eurovision When She Was Just 18 Years Old!

no title

Who would have thought she'd be an international superstar just six years later?!

Rita Ora may be one of the biggest musical acts out of Britain in 2015, but back in 2009 she was just a regular ol' teenager.

Well… she wasn't exactly average — she still had that voice!

In fact, Rita actually auditioned to be the UK representative at Eurovision with the song Get Here when she was just 18 years old… and she won!

Luckily for her, a wise-beyond-her-years Rita turned down the opportunity to sing an Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber original at the European competition because she could tell her career would probably be over at that point.

Seeing as she's currently a judge on X Factor… we'd say she was right! LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out Rita's Eurovision: Your Country Needs You audition (below)!!!

Norm Lewis Will Be The First Black Phantom In Broadway’s Opera!

Filed under: Broadway Babies

Yes! Progress!

Porgy and Bess star Norm Lewis has landed the role of Phantom in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Broadway musical The Phantom of the Opera!

This is huge because the Tony-nominated actor will be the first ever black actor to play the part ever, when it opens on May 12th.

Lewis was just as excited as us, and said:

"First, I love the show. Second, to set a precedent."

Exactly! We couldn’t have said it better! And don’t worry about him forgetting the words because Norm said he’s been warming up with the tunes all along!

In case you’re curious
