Cat Lovers Don't Feck Around in 'Lieutenant of Inishmore' at Long Beach Playhouse
Benny the cat plays Wee Thomas, muse and object of the Padraic's affection. The role is small, but show-stealing, mostly because Benny is like, you know, um, super-adorable and stuff. Benny's publicist says that the cat actor recently moved to Los Angeles to break into television and that he likes to keep in shape because the camera adds ten pound, which is a lot for a little kitty. Benny is a master of the the wide-eyed cautionary cat stare.
The Lieutenant of Inishmore is playing at the Studio at Long Beach Playhouse through February 12, 2011. Long Beach Playhouse is located at 5021 E. Anaheim Street, Long Beach, CA 90804. Tickets are available online at www.longbeachplayhouse.org or by phone at 562-494-1014.
