Subtitles, Please

Tonight I went to see "Cats".
Holy crap. Does this show have a story? I have no clue. I can't tell you what it was about, other than it has a lot of cats that sing and dance. Totally over my head.

Here is my problem. I cannot understand what people are saying when they sing. I can only focus on the melody, not the words. This does not bode well for a show that is done 100% in song. I need subtitles!

I still enjoyed it though, mostly because the girl who sings "Memory" was fantastic. Shivers. So good.

I think I was half nuts when I bought tickets for this show because it really isn't my type. I hate cats! But it's a classic, the ticket was cheap.. and what the heck, why not? I'm not sure if I'd recommend this show considering I can't even tell you what it's about, but if you like music, dancing, cool costumes, and crazy makeup.. then go for it!

So, have you seen "Cats"? If so, what'd ya think?


  1. Hmmmm, I'm not a huge fan of Andrew Lloyd Weber (except for Phantom and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat - my FAVORITE!)in general, and I've always been a little creeped out by the concept of this show...but I also feel like I should see it once in my life because, well, it's CATS! If I ever come across cheap tickets, I'll definitely go.

  2. you hate cats???...what about poor

  3. Ok - Memories is now stuck in my head! :)

    Its played here many times and I have never gone so I didn't know the story either. I googled it! All its supposed to be is a sneak peek into the lives of cats, each one taking a turn to sing his or her song and introduce you to its life. Riveting stuff eh . ;)

  4. Well... after reading Marina's comment I am definitely not interested in seeing CATS. I do like the song Memories though.
