Post Laurie Beechman singing Memory
Somebody posted an actual clip of Laurie Beechman performing "Memory" on Broadway

Ugh, every single performance should sound like this. Perfect orchestrations, perfect pace. The song should be slow and reflective, not rushed. And her acting is spot-on. She actually looks like she's close to death; which sadly she was in real life.

A real treat for any fan:

Okay, had to share another clip of her: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcZ3zRpusdw

It's not an actual "Cats" performance, but wow, I think vocally this is my favorite rendition of hers. That "touch me!" felt like a jolt of lightening. I can't imagine what that would've been like in the theater!
