Yes indeed! Hence my tag ‘#georgey baby being all cute in the bg" ;)
He’s SO CUTE in that song!! Awestruck is definitely the word. All the toms turn into such adorable dorks when Bustopher comes around.
=^_^= Hearing that makes me happier than Etcetera during Tugger’s hip gyrations. It was indeed a wonderful production, and I’m glad we could both see it. I miss it and I miss you <3
How does seeing it live compare to the video? I’ve always wanted to see it but I’m afraid I’ll hate it because I’ve watched the video hundreds of times. Glad you liked it! :)
Okay trust me on this! I am the girl who watched the video three times a day every single day for about a year of my life. I still watch it as often as I can. I know the video inside and out. I worship the video. The video means everything to me.
But it’s missing so much!!!
And I’m not just talking about verses and songs and dance sequences, even though that’s also right up there. There’s just an immersive aspect of CATS that the video cannot convey. The vibrance and energy of the lights and the music. The audience interaction by the actors. And the background interactions between characters. If you see it live, you never see it the same way twice. CATS is alive. The video, unfortunately, in many ways, is not.
If you have the chance to see a good production, PLEASE GO SEE IT. I will be insanely jealous of you, but for the love of the Everlasting Cat, see it. It’s an experience. When I see CATS, I am smiling from overture to finale. When I see CATS, it only makes me fall in love with it even more, which sometimes I can’t even believe is possible, because CATS is the love of my life.
CATS at the Benedum in Pittsburgh (with mah friend lcrell)! It was a really good production, I thought, even though I don’t have anything specific to comment on (besides Demeter’s fantastic wig). Everything was perfect. And we had great seats, even though I wish we could have been down below so the Cats could creep in our faces.
It was so good seeing it live again <3 Now and Forever.
(and of course I made my friend watch the video with me the day after … )
The Pittsburgh CLO production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats will feature Broadway veteran Ken Prymus and Elizabeth Stanley. Performances are set to begin July 18.
Gonna be seeing this in a week!
Well … I can’t say I’m not interested. It’s such a drastic and unexpected change that I do want to see exactly how ALW envisions it. It’s … complicated. I’m intrigued, but I don’t want it.
I’m more interested in how he wants to change Growltiger, since I do know that that IS a number not everyone likes.
I feel very confident in assuring you that, no, you are definitely not the only one! I haven’t heard one positive comment about it since it was announced. Unfortunately, there really is no doing anything about it.
