XFACTOR TO TV EXEC Zayn Malik turns his talents to television as he joins Hollywood show about a boy band
Former One Direction star will share his experience and knowledge with cast and crew
ZAYN MALIK hated being in a boy band — but that hasn’t put off the former One Direction star from creating a TV show about one.

‘Cats’: Theater Review
British pop star Leona Lewis headlines the ensemble of this first Broadway revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-breaking 1981 musical.

The world can safely be divided into two camps: people who love Cats and those who hate it. The former will be happily satisfied by the new revival reuniting many members of the original creative team (with one notable exception), returning to Broadway 16 years after the closing of the show’s record-breaking original 18-year run. As for the latter, this slightly scaled-down and rejiggered version is unlikely to change their minds.

The 1981 musical was always something of an oddity, foregoing a traditional narrative in favor of a cantata-like structure based on T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. Its original Broadway success was due to a combination of Trevor Nunn’s immersive staging; John Napier’s spectacular scenic design, which transformed the Winter Garden Theatre into a giant junkyard; Gillian Lynne’s sinuous choreography; and the earworm-heavy score by Andrew Lloyd Webber, whose ballad “Memory” became a song from which there was no escape.
