Just back from a couple of days in the big city, where I went to see the musical Cats. Oh dear, the cast were not up to it and neither was the direction. Sorry everybody, it was not a patch on the production I once saw in Hamburg. For a musical that relies a lot on the TS Eliot poems and the words as well as visual and musical input, that kind of says it all. Couldn’t hear all the words and the cats in the background stood around like stookies instead of being in character.
Mind you, if you have got tickets, do go, I suspect there were one or two understudies in the performance I saw.
