Killing The CatKilling The Cat
Book and lyrics by Warner Brown
Music by Joshua Schmidt

Riverside Studios, 101 Queen Caroline Street, London W6 9BN

Killing The Cat asks questions. Big questions.

What happens when you're falling for someone but don't share their beliefs? What happens when you're so sure you're right you won't move an inch? Does love stand a chance?

In the heady world of the romantic poets, scientific theories and certainties, can lust and love keep two polar opposites together beyond the first night?

Killing The Cat is a new transatlantic collaboration between an Anglo-American writing team - book and lyrics by 'Walking With Dinosaurs' writer Warner Brown and music by radical American composer Joshua Schmidt, and UK and US producers - Mercurius Theatre, S&S Theatre Productions and Kent Nicholson.

Starring Madalena Alberto who has played some of the most coveted roles in Musical Theatre, including the title role in 'Evita', Nettie Fowler in 'Carousel' and Velma Kelly in 'Chicago', Tim Rogers whose many leading roles include Judas Iscariot in 'Jesus Christ Superstar', Alex in 'Aspects of Love' and Tony in 'West Side Story', Joaquin Pedro Valdes, whose work includes Heathers the musical at The Other Palace, Death Note at the Palladium and Lyric Theatre and Pacific Overtures at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Molly Lynch, The Last Five Years at Southwark Playhouse and The Garrick Theatre, and Kluane Saunders, HMS Pinafore and Relatively Speaking.
