Cats had its Danish premiere on 19th September 2002 at the Det Ny Theater in Copenhagen where it ran until 13th April 2003.

Production Specifics Edit

The style of the show was a mix of London/UK productions and the Broadway version of the show. Since Richard Stafford, the supervisor of the Broadway production, was the director of the Danish version, many elements from the Broadway show were used: Alonzo, for example, danced behind Demeter during the 'Macavity' number. The costume and make-up designs were rather based on UK style productions though with a few differences (e.g. Tugger's costume or Alonzo's make-up).

The cast consisted of 22 cats, with no Electra. Most of the character's names were translated into Danish names. (e.g. Rum Tum Tugger became Rabalder Rocco, Rumpleteazer became Salto Sally). A few actors had performed in other productions: Tim van der Straeten (Mistoffelees) played Pouncival and Mistoffelees in Hamburg, Stuttgart and Antwerp; Jan Erik Madsen played Tugger in Hamburg and later on the World Tour and also Andrew Gardner had performed in the Stuttgart production. Also, Gerald Marko played Tugger in Hamburg.
