Lloyd Webber Attacks Kardashian Spoof

I haven’t seen the show in question — but I doubt Andrew Lloyd Webber has either. Page Six reports: ‘the claws came out in a battle between the iconic composer and an off-Broadway show he says stole his tunes — “Katdashians! Break the Musical!” A New York Times review of “Katdashians” on Sunday described it as “a noisy concoction that grafts the wacky Kardashian family . . . into an extravaganza resembling [Webber’s] ‘Cats,’ ” with “music . . . sounding suspiciously like ‘Cats.’” But by Monday, the show agreed to cut any “Cats” tunes due to legal pressure from Webber. “We were pretty shocked,” said the off-Broadway show’s co-creator Tobly McSmith of hearing from Webber’s attorneys. “We are fans of Webber and his work . . . We thought he’d enjoy the parodies we did of his songs, but apparently he did not.”
