Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, makes the Jellicle choice and announces which of them will go up to the heavyside layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.For the 2006 UK tour, music, dance and verse fuse together in an enchanting blend of fantasy, drama and romance in the Cameron Mackintosh and the Really Useful Group production of the musical.
