Internet Cats Scratch Way To Top

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One furry Internet meme has now become a stage spectacular.

I Can Has Cheezburger: The MusicLOL is an original musical based on the hugely popular website ICanHasCheezburger.com, which features pictures of cats with funny, misspelled phrases captioning the images.

In the play, which opens Friday (Aug. 11) at New York’s Cherry Lane Theatre, the “LOLcats,” as the stars of the site are called, go on a quest for the one thing they want most in the world – a “cheezburger.”

Co-writers and producers Kristyn Pomranz and Katherine Steinberg decided to write the play after Pomranz sang a made-up song about her favorite website to Steinberg, who thought the tune was “genius.”

To make sure their musical extravaganza gets lot of LOLs – laughs out loud – the writers are taking everything very seriously.

With that, Pomranz hopes to give audiences an “80-minute song and dance pick me up.”
