Cats!



Continuing with my trip down memory lane we went to see Cats on Sunday!  I saw in in 1985 so yes, I was 14.  Seeing it all these years later was fun but I realised just how cheesy it is - I felt like Charlotte the whole time!

On the way home the Suburban Prince and I were talking about it and he was asking what a Jellicle cat is and which parts were written by TS Elliot and which parts were written by Andrew Lloyd Webber....

Suburban Prince:  Well, I understand the underlying message...
Suburban Princess:  You do?  I studied Cats in drama class and I have no idea what the underlying message is!
Suburban Prince:  Duh...spay and neuter your pets!


Have a fabulous day!

By the time I got to an age where I could see that, people made fun of people who saw it. :( But, then they played it at the local college a couple of years ago so I went anyhow. I actually liked it!

ROFL! Out of the mouths of babes, huh? That's hilarious.

I remember wanting to see "Cats" on Broadway SO badly, but never did. It was playing during my child-bearing-raising-toddlers days. I do have the music though, and I love it!

I got to see it in Halifax a few years ago (via my binoculars); and I loved it. I've had the DVD for many years.

I used to be a Mungo Jerri or Rumpleteaser cat; but now I often feel like Grizel (sp??) the Glamor Cat.

I loved Cats as a kid, and listened to the soundtrack constantly! I love your husbands interpretation of the whole thing! I'm not sure I have a better clue.

That is quite funny! I saw Cats in Boston and London years ago! It is a bit done out now. I remember being shocked that Betty Buckley was the star, because I loved her in Eight is Enough! Do you remember that TV show?

I LOVE T.S. Eliot (& theatre), so it really is a shame that I've never managed to see Cats! Love your blog!

I saw it on Broadway when I was in maybe the 5th grade and loved it. But you're right- I have no idea what the point is. Haha.

One of my favorite quotes that I use all the time, "It was better than Cats!"

Love your hubby's take on the message! I have tickets to see Cats in August. It seems that over the years for one reason or another I always missed it when it was running. I am looking forward to seeing it but your husband's comment will be running through my head! LOL
