No. I think it looks stupid and I enjoyed it on Broadway.

Cats has got to be one of the most overrated musicals of the last forty years. One insipid song sung over and over and over….and overdone makeup,

Seeing a trailer would not give me goosebumps, but it might upset my stomach.

I saw the original run on Broadway. I loved it. I just watched the movie trailer. I hated it.

As a furry, I was not one bit aroused.
I also lost all hope when I saw that James Corden and Rebel Wilson wete in it.

I saw the musical live on stage. Once was enough.

Never saw the Bway show. It wasn’t appealing to me.

No. I saw it over 30 years ago and didn’t love it. I wouldn’t be inclined to see it again live or in the cinema.

Must admit it gave me goosebumps. That song always gets me. Lol

It kinda gives me the creeps.

^^Guessing it’s a mix of CGI and practical fx in costuming. Yes, it’s a bit creepy to me too.

Its good to see actors that I remember. Like Judi Dench. And Ian McKellen , Magneto.

i just saw a news article that said it is horrifying the entire internet, so I just had to see WHY!!! I definitely was NOT horrified by it & I don’t remember any goosebumps either. I wasn’t that impressed & I wasn’t even tempted to go see it!!!Ii thought that I must of missed something & I just can’t put my finger on what it is!!!

I think it looks like a bunch of people running around with Snapchat filters.

Interesting how many indifferent and negative answers here.

Well @JLeslie, the trailer sucked in my opinion. IF they can’t provide me with a decent trailer, what reason do I have to believe that I won’t be wasting my time & money on a lousy production???

JLeslie's avatar

^^I actually meant that people didn’t like Cats in the theatre originally. I was one of the negative people, you make it sound like I was criticizing people instead of saying a lot of jellies seem to have the same opinion as me.

I’m surprised that show ever was on Broadway when I hear how many people didn’t like it very much. Not just jellies, whenever it was talked about I always heard a mix where a lot of people didn’t like it, but there were always a few who did.

According to Wiki “It won numerous awards, including Best Musical at both the Laurence Olivier Awards and the Tony Awards. An unprecedented commercial hit, the musical had grossed over $2 billion worldwide by 1994 and started the megamusical phenomenon that has dominated the industry ever since. The London production ran for 21 years (1981–2002; 8,949 performances) and the Broadway production ran for 18 years (1982–2000; 7,485 performances)”. I had many friends who spent the weekend in NYC just to go see it & returned ranting about how wonderful it was. Maybe I was expecting too much; but, I was put off by the just so-so trailer for a “Best Musical”, I didn’t see the original & only watched the trailer after seeing a news item saying that the entire internet was horrified by the trailer. So, my curiosity wondered what there was that was horrifying everyone in a once Best Musical production. I still don’t know as I wasn’t horrified & I also wasn’t impressed!!!

I was simply expanding on my opinion & in NO way meant my comment to be seen as a personal attack…that includes this comment!!!
