Big Fat Cat, directed by Tim Bennett with music direction by Chris Fenwick, will feature the talents of Bruce Vilanch (Hairspray) and Christiane Noll (Jekyll & Hyde, Frankenstein). Additional casting will be announced shortly.

“On her 37th birthday, Terry, a lonely but talented anklet maker desperately wishes on an anklet for a man to give her life meaning. Her wish comes true – well, sort of… Instead of the perfect man, she gets Big Fat Cat – a stray overweight feline with lousy manners, questionable values, and a potent fixation on catnip and cream. BFC takes a reluctant Terry on a journey of self-discovery through a colorful world that includes self-obsessed co-workers, an eligible bachelor, his nebbish best friend and the overrated concept of wishing. Big Fat Cat is for everyone who has wished upon that star and then regretted it for the rest of their lives,” explain press notes.
Ripley-Grier Studios are located at 520 8th Avenue on the 16th floor. By invitation only.
