The musical, which will play a limited engagement through June 2, will also star Ken Page (It Ain't Nothin' But the Blues, Ain't Misbehavin', Cats, Guys and Dolls, The Wiz), who originated the role of Old Deuteronomy on Broadway. Here's how Gateway bills the musical: "Based on the poetry of T.S. Elliot, Andrew Lloyd Webber's smash hit transports audiences into the fantastic, spellbinding realm of the Jellical Cats. Set on the evening of the Jellical Ball, the Jellicals compete for rebirth into a better life by showcasing their talents and good deeds. Webber's magical score includes legendary favorites including 'Jellical Songs for Jellical Cats,' 'Mr. Mistoffelees' and the haunting 'Memory.'"
