I enjoyed my first time seeing “Cats” this weekend!
My friend, Melina, was the Musical Director of a high school age cast in Seattle, so 5 of us piled in the car and went up to see the show.
The set was incredible.That is Old Deuteronomy, contemplating which of the Jellicle cats deserves most the opportunity to be reborn.
I wish he had played a little on his trumpet.
The cast did an amazing job. The choreography was incredible. I think they must have been required to observe actual felines, because they did a fantastic job of throwing in those funny mannerisms that cat owners recognize right away. Of course the singing and dancing was the best part, and these kids pulled it off famously. The director chose to give the cats the costumes/attitudes of celebrities, which at first I thought was crazy, but it came of very well and it was fun to figure out who each of them were.
Great jeorb Melina! Thanks for the opportunity!
