Cats... What to say about Cats... Not my favourite show... at all. But I'll listen to it, and I'll sing along. I don't hate it by any means, but it's far from my favourite.

My school is doing it this year and I'm trying out for Griddlebone. But with luck, I'll get called back for Ruppleteazer. I know, sounds weird to you Cats folk, but the song I'm doing shows off belting and opera, so I'm in good shape.


If I can't hear the music, and the audience is gone,

I'll dance here on my own.

I enjoy cats =) Never really understood why it was made or the reason for it being such a big deal for so long a time... But, its a very nice musical =) With some funny scenes... Some silly characters. And some beautiful dancing
=)

Nicole,

Just to enlighten you (since I had to take a test on this for my Cats role):

Andrew Lloyd Webber read T.S. Eliot's work, and immediately, could hear and feel music to go with it. He collaborated with a well-trusted team and together, they accumulated all of his work and transformed it pretty smoothly into a musical. At first, when it was off-off-Broadway, it got scathing reviews. So they added a very strong, very prominent dance aspect. No on wants to see a bunch of cats singing on a stage. No one would pay for that. So with a LOT of dance added, the show was edited, re-released and was better accepted. After a few more years of trying, it made it to Broadway where it became the second longest running show in history. This, of course is a much shorter, condensed version of what happened, but I assume you get the idea.

Glad to clear that up.

By the way, I made an A on the Cats test. :)

*thread revival*

I'd just like to say that I love the choreography for the Rum Tum Tugger, Macavity, and Mr. Mistoffelees!

However, I also enjoyed what they did for Growltiger's part, as well as -- in the case of the 1998 film -- the Pekes and Pollicles. That was hilarious!

I also enjoyed Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer's part because it was such a fun dance. In addition, Bustopher Jones (though he didn't really dance, per se) was interesting because of the comical aspects.

The only thing I really didn't like too much -- dance-wise -- is that the Jellicle Ball scenes dragged on a bit more than they should have.

I'm gonna have to agree with Chrissy, it's not my favorite anymore either. I realize that it's from a bunch of "nonsense poems" but there really was no compelling story line apart from Grizabella (and I'd want to play her if I was older because there's no dance involved heh). Anywho, the show has some catchy tunes and great dancing but I think you would enjoy it more if you were a dancer.

Yeah, Viktoria has a point, but I have to admit I've always been a sucker for the Rum Tum Tugger -- especially if played by Terrence Mann -- but also that I love the whole musical.

So I'm bringing this thread back to life to tell you that while I was at the Salvation Army Thrift Shop today, my mom found a CATS t-shirt for me! It's the one with "Cats" written in white letters on the front and two yellow eyes on the back.

CATS is my absolute favourite musical! I love it just so very much :D My favourite Jellicle is Jemima and my favourite song is The Ad-Dressing of Cats.
