THE PROSECUTION RESTS ITS CASE:

'Cats' due for a return to Tokyo (Japan Times, 8/09/04)

"It is a masterpiece of the sort that appears once in 100 years."

Omygod,
I remember, on a business trip to NYC in the mid-80's, ponying up in excess of $300 to the concierge at the hotel to get us tickets to see Cats.
One song worth hearing in the most pretentious piece of [crap] I've ever sat thru.
The same trip saw, "Le Cage au Folles" or whatever the actual title was, absolutely great, this from an anti-gay marriage member of the VRWC, and a Debbie Allen show, can't remember the title, which was also great.
Will never, ever, pay even money to see anything by Webber again in the short time remaining to me in this mortal pale.
BTW, Phantom is/was just another one song POS from Webber, but at least I didn't pay one nickel to ascertain this.

Boy, I wish you hadn't told us that...

I never went to see Weber on B'way, not even in the decade we lived in NYC. As near as I can tell he wrote one song at the begining of his career and has messed around with the lyrics.

The longest evening of my life, second only to "Miss Saigon."

What are you [soccer-types] doing at Broadway shows?
