Other info and trivia:
In London Macavity was originally played by the same person as Mungojerrie. Later productions changed this to George, then to Coricopat and finally Admetus. Broadway, Vienna, Germany, Stockholm/Gothenburg, Paris, Mexico/Argentina, and Danish productions all double Macavity with Plato. (Although in Mex/Arg, Plato is called Platon.)
