Post New Tugger "Rap" out there yet?
Has anyone found the new version of the Tugger "Rap" out there? I'm sure its only a matter of time before someone posts something to YouTube. I guess it's too early yet but hopefully by the end of this week there should be some bootleg out there.

I really want to hear how horrible it sounds and the new lyrics as well. Posts to the CATS the Musical Facebook page have people bemoaning the fact that it sounds AWFUL and most want the song changed back. Any comments? Also did the Growltiger number get changed too? I also want to see Nicole as Griz and see if they changed the costume or not.

Hopefully CATS the musical official pages will put something out soon.

The new Brochure is out as well as a few other merchandise things too. I updated my collection with some things today. That "Onesie" is going to be a strange addition.

Please keep us posted and be sure to post info on the Tugger number if you can find it! Thanks!

Purrs,
VTWC

Hi,
Just a quick note from London:
- Tuggers's rap is not that bad: not what I like because it's more an 80s rap, but for example my husband really enjoyed it as it remind him when he was younger. For me, the worst is Tuggers' new costume, no more cat like!! I hated it during all show.
- Griz new costume: Looks like a prostitute who get ill. Doesn't look old, complete change of the character
- Nicole S as Griz: no no no. Ok she can sing, but she is supposed to act too... Big no for me.
- Growltiger: loved the new costumes of Growltiger and crew. Old London. Loved the set with London bridge image at the back. New song is surprising but ok. No more duet Growltiger-Gridd, sad, but more Siamese song
- Jenny new tap dance
- a few music changes here and there, surprising at first but it's good to see little evolutions like that.
- what is this smoke at the end of the show? Seating front row, could not stand it, had to put a scarf on mouth and nose, could not appreciate the end of the show

Well, in general the show was great. Saw Trevor Nunn at the backstage door :)

Edit: brochure is not out nor new goodies.

Oh the Humanity! I can't even express how disappointed and upset I am, with these changes to MY MUSICAL!

RAGEFUL!

I know, he doesn't even carry anything cat like to the costume. It reminds me of terrible, low-budget regionals!

I just think you should see the show before criticising all changes. Everything is not that bad ;)

OMG! Tugger looks awful!!! I hope that no production here in America changes it to that. I wonder if the rap as as bad a Homer Simpson rapping himself?
