Human beings spend years training in the fields of theater, music and dance for the mere chance to grace a hallowed Broadway stage. Grumpy Cat, though ― she just had to sit still for a second and scowl.

The kitty whose hilarious frown and less hilarious feline dwarfism made her a viral sensation is slated to appear in the Broadway musical revival of Cats for one night only: Sept. 30, 2016. This Friday! 

According to a spokesman for the show, the natural talent “will be worked into the end of the show and will become an honorary Jellicle Cat.” This great, ambiguous honor will raise the status of the nation’s most beloved curmudgeonly cat, who already has 8.7 million Facebook followers.

A press release for the event features a quote from Grumpy Cat herself, no doubt obtained through scientific means not yet comprehensible to the outside world. “Being selected as the first real cat to perform in ‘Cats’ on Broadway is an honor,” she meowed. “I hate it. If I’m really being honest, I’d prefer to play the Phantom in ‘The Phantom of the Opera.’”

Whether or not approximately two minutes of Grumpy Cat stage time will compel people to sit through two hours of singing, sexy cats remains to be seen

CATS ARE HEAVEN SENT

That is funny, but what an honor.....even if it is just for one night, that is really something!  To reach such stardom just by being himself.

Re: GRUMPY CAT IS on BROADWAY

I totally approve of ALL THINGS Grumpy Cat, BUT I have to admit to thinking that Grumpy's Christmas Movie fell a little flat in my opinion, with much too much plot and not nearly enough Grumpy.

 

Still, ANYTHING with even a smidgeon of Grumpy has something going for it.

Ticket sales must be slow for them to pull a publicity stunt like this.  My friend is making his Broadway debut in this show in a couple weeks.  I hope it doesn't close before he gets to do it!

@violann Hubby and I enjoyed the Grumpy Cat Christmas movie! We didn't expect to but we laughed a lot and were quite entertained. (Maybe we're just simple folks!).
