Thank you so much for posting those clips!!

First of all, their pronunciation was very distracting. "MacaviDY" "GraviDY"" .....what? Their singing seemed a little unprofessional to me.

Anyway, regarding the costumes: I sort of dig them. The director was saying in that one clip that he wanted to go for a grittier, more feral look, which the messy wigs achieve. I've seen far worse costumes. Not crazy about the makeup; there's something too perfect and powdery looking about it. I will agree that the Growltiger and Griddlebone costumes are a bit silly.

Here are some more clips:

More from CATS Mexico, 2013, regional production:

ADDRESSING OF CATS:

MACAVITY AND CATFIGHT:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCLA9DYbmLw

PRETTY SWEET LIGHT UP MACAVITY! Why they lit him up, IDK. Save that for Misto I say, but otherwise kinda surprising and cool.

MEMORY:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4yN-EJsk9U

She sounds very operatic, and I don't like it very much. Sung way too in a low key. And the red winter gloves have to go! ;-) One of my least favorite singing of Memory. Pretty bad I think. Not to my liking.

FINALE:

With excepts from all the songs at the end??? It's ok I guess...

Whoever did the orchestrations did a fantastic job. The score sounds better than ever. I also really love the set. The lighting, not so much. It's too bright.

Macavity: LOL @ the light up costume! This song sounds really sexy in Spanish. The Bombalurina wig is ....interesting.

Grizabella: I think her voice is lovely and very much fits the character, however, the riffing is inappropriate. Now is not the time to be showboating. With that said, it was still impressive on its own. Though she's got nothing on the legendary Maria Del Sol (who's one of my favorites, by the way).

Old D: Very lovable. I like his acting in Adressing.

This is a BEAUTIFUL French cover of "Memory"- one of the best I've ever heard. However, the lyrics are entirely different from "La Chanson de Grizabelle"; they seem to have completely changed the translation. It's now a love song? :? Well it's beautiful regardless. That belt....*melts*

I love this Rum Tum Tugger.

Here's a Chinese CATS finale for you guys! I wish that I could contact this superfan in China. His name is Reve4suGnA and his account is on YouKu. Sounds like me at the end of the show too, yelling everyone's names. LOL!

Here's the URL:

Yes, she did. Like the Korean production, the Chinese production is replicated directly on the last Australasian tour, so they seemed to have copied it right down to that detail.

I love my Spanish speaking Grizabellas! This is a great video. I wish we could get a professionally recorded live show like this.....

Her acting brought tears to my eyes. Not many actresses capture the old, weak, and dying aspect of the character. I also adore that costume and makeup.

Here's the full Israeli production from a couple years back. The audio is really good quality, you could almost make a cast recording out of it. I think the lighting is quite good. It's also one of the funniest Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer numbers I've ever seen.
