Post CATS: Most appealing aspect?
There's obviously something for everyone in CATS, but what is the main aspect that really does it for you? The songs, the costumes, the story? I absolve myself from this discussion, because I admire the show more than I enjoy it.

For a cliché and unhelpful answer, the whole thing.

For a better answer, the way I can enjoy it on multiple levels. I can look in detail at all of the character and story embedded in the music, lyrics, orchestrations, choreography, costumes, etc. Or, I can just enjoy the singing dancing cats on a shallow level with no thought in it at all. It's a show that works on whatever level the individual audience member wants to take it at.

I'm also interested in what you mean by "I admire the show more than I enjoy it." That sounds like an interesting discussion by itself.

I have to say the same. Nothing would fully work without the other.

It's pretty self explanatory. Even if I don't enjoy the show thoroughly, I'm still able to find things about it to admire.

The emotions, the difference between songs that you just don't get with other musicals.
