Leona Lewis on 'Cats': 'I feel like this role will improve me as a performer'

Songstress Leona Lewis has revealed that stepping into the role of Grizabella in the Broadway production of Cats has been a challenge. 

She told Billboard that she had to commit all of her time and energy to prepare for the role and believes it will improve her as a performer:

"It's a lot of work and it's very focused and dedicated and you have to literally eat, sleep, live, breathe the theatre. That was a whole new challenge for me and something I wanted to take on. I feel like it will improve me as a performer -- it already has."

She added: "We spent two days crawling around as a cat. We were cats. We ate as cats, we were napping as cats, the whole cast was crawling around as cats. So we definitely have that in our body."
