OBSESSED!: Seth Rudetsky, Who Considers Himself a Dog Person, Invites David Hibbard and Cats to the Studio

Seth Rudetsky is back with a brand-new episode of OBSESSED! This time, he's got Broadway veteran David Hibbard (who just finished playing the scheming Tony in Seth's Off-Broadway production of Disaster) in studio. Hibbard is probably best known for playing Rum Tum Tugger in the Broadway production of Cats. After some eight years in the role, he learned valuable lessons about life in the theatre, including why it's good to avoid lawsuits and how to quickly apply his cat makeup. Here, he demonstrates the latter skill while performing "The Rum Tum Tugger" backed by a chorus of Cats aficionados. Read Seth’s weekly column. Visit SethTV.com, Seth’s online home.
