About a month ago I got tickets for Cats, for tonight. I've never seen it and hubby and I haven't been going out nearly enough lately. So, fairly exciting I thought.

Then one of my friends posted on FB about how pissed off she was with the performance on Sunday night in Toronto (same group, they got here Tuesday). When I asked her how bad she replied with the following:

It was worse than bad, it was HORRIBLE!!! really, really horrible, the dancers sucked, the singing was poor, the sets are cheap and stupid, the main characters, both male and female, are weak and boring Seriously, sell your tickets. We were not the only ones who left, some people left even before the intermezzo. Two women in front up us were pissed and we heard them say they were going to ask for a refund . . .. We see lots of stuff and it isn't always great but this production was insulting and the tickets were $137.50 EACH!

Not the most promising review for my intro to this show. I may never be able to drag hubby out to another show after this.
Who does she think she is?

I saw Cats after Phantom & Les Miz and was disappointed. I think that if it was one of my first shows I would have liked it more.....

It wasn't a horrible performance, and I'm glad I went. I mean, it's poems about cats.

It was definitely a scaled down set, and a lot of synth music. It was a bit disappointing that they didn't actually tap in the one scene either, not sure if they usually do.

It actually kind of reminded me of Rocky Horror but with cats. That may have been because the guy that played Rum Tum Tugger reminded me of a cross between Tim Curry and John Travolta *g*
