I'm trying to like what I see...

but...to me "Cats the Musical" is about live theatre.

Seeing it in a different medium, I mean even the version seen on 1998 (?) was pretty much the theatre musical on film.

I don't think this will win me over.

Dear Musicals.Net Posters,

I am reading a lot of online comments about the cats looking like "nightmare fuel". I'm not so much scared as I am worried. To understand why that is, you have to understand that "CATS" was the first stage musical with which I was obsessed! I saw it at least two years in a row live! I have loved the soundtrack from this musical since I was very young! When I saw the 1998 movie version, I was disappointed, as I thought that it was too sexy and suggestive, even given musical theatre's penchant for the dramatic.

I hate to sound rude here, but when I watched the trailer, I had the following reactions:

Jennyanydots: "Wow! That looks like Amy Schumer / Melissa McCarthy, except as a naked cat! ACK!"

Taylor Swift's Bombalurina....sprinkling Cat Nip: "Well, that went way too modern and materialistic all of a sudden!"

Taylor Swift's Bombalurina wearing shoes: "They wear shoes?"

Oh, and about all of the spoken dialogue that's not from the songs....I thought that this was supposed to be a musical that was in line with song-to-song musicals like "Les Miserables" and "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat". What the actual heck?

Oh, well. I guess that we'll either be purring or coughing up hairballs come December. :lol: The fact that I recently got an abandoned kitten is le irony grande! Her coat is literally "of the tabby kind, with tiger stripes and leopard spots," except that I like to think of her as a Jellylorum! That name will forever fascinate me!

Thanks in advance for your replies.
8-)
