First, what I knew about CATS was from my childhood memories of seing the TV commercial over and over, which it juxtaposed with my liking of the Saturday morning cartoons THUNDERCATS. I asked my mom that I wanted to go see CATS, which I've got a no (Not a kids thing). Well, years went by, things I like back then forgotten in memory box of life. Now, pass forward to today (3/11/10). I no longer need to ask what I want. I hit goldstar, bang I've got the go.
This is the second time I visited the Pantages theater and got good seats (Y 208). I commuted via metro rail from S. Pasadena (Yellow Line to Red Line) and got off at Vine. I reccomend to everyone who has access to the metro to take it. It runs way after 2230 and is safe. Also if you get there about two hours early (1700) to pickup your ticket, take the metro to Highland (heading North Hollywood), where you will find plenty of restaurants and cafe and lots of entertainment on the street to see. The Pantages street row has little to offer for relaxation or a place to have a cup of coffee.
Back to CATS. I found the musical lacking of a libretto, it was rather a dance act. It was like a collage of other mediums that didn't flow. I could have easily taken a general word like cats in the prowl and say that it was inspired by Shakespeare. The stage and customs awesome. The story as a whole tiresome. My god they could have easily had made a west side story about cats, instead they came out with Jellicle cats..jellicle cats...hiss. I wanted to leave after the first act; damn it I paid for this and I am not getting my money back. So I stayed (mothers are always right)and took liberty of snoozing. Hey, I can't tell you not to go because they were some weirdos who were loving it and maybe, and only maybe you could be one of them. As far as me, Give me my time back!

The musical itself was built up in my head for such a long time that maybe that was the reason I didn't care for it as it was disapointing. There were some technical issues as well (maybe cause it was the first week) like some of the singing was...continued

I have seen Cats before. I don't believe there is any middle ground. You either love it or hate it. I am of the love it variety. I took my 7 year old and he was absolutely enthralled. When he found out the musical is based on a book of poetry, he...continued
There’s no better way to introduce your family to the wonders of live theater than with the magic, the mystery, the memory of Cats. What began as a musical about cats after Andrew Lloyd Webber picked up a book of poems in an airport bookshop has become one of the longest running shows in Broadway’s history. Winner of seven Tony Awards® including Best Musical, __Cats __features 20 of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s timeless melodies, including the hit song, “Memory.”
