A Cat’s Diary: How the Broadway Production of CATS Was Born

"I'm the anon who asked about your Japanese cast recordings :) The original cast recording is live (you can hear the audience) and was recorded, I believe, in 1983. The long-run cast recording was recorded in 1989 in a studio. They are also different casts. I have the long-run cast recording, and it's one of my most prized possessions, but I would love to hear the original if that's the one you have!"

Oh godddd I want that!! Pretty sure I have the same as you though =\

"I've always wondered if I was the only CATS fan who actually listens to the cast recordings and watches the film regularly. It looks like you do, too! Also, do you plan on re-uploading any of your cast recordings (particularly Hamburg and Dutch '06)? And do you know if the Japanese recording you have is original or long-run? Thanks! :) (Can I link to you on my CATS site even though it isn't tumblr-based?)"

Oh believe me, you are definitely not the only one! I do listen to CATS pretty much every day, and I watch the video - even if only a little bit - quite often. My love for CATS pervades my daily life, really. 

I do need to reupload my cast recordings, but here are the ones you requested: (x) (x) Hamburg’s my favorite, so I hope you enjoy!!

I don’t know about the Japanese! I’ve been wondering for quite a while now what the difference is between the two Japanese listings I keep seeing. I don’t know what it is, and I’m not sure which I have. If you could explain??


Special CATS Playbills.

I really want to try my hand at CATS makeup … but I don’t even know how to put on normal makeup, so I don’t know how well this endeavor would turn out. sighhhh.
