A Night with the Jellicle Cats

There's a man over there with a look of surprise,
As much as to say, "Well now how about that!"
Do I actually see with my own very eyes
A man who's not heard of a Jellicle cat?
What's a Jellicle cat? What's a Jellicle cat?

This was my second time to watch Cats and I have to admit that it still isn't my cup of tea. Love the overall production but the songs just don't resonate with me. It's always seemed to me to be all about the choreography.

That being said, Andre and I were excited to watch our first show at the Esplanade, especially since Miles had gotten us prime seats in a Box.

Our seats were excellent, giving us not only a great view of the Stage, but also a great spot for Jellicle cats to strut and preen.

Andre watched in open-mouthed wonder as the Jellicles came to the Jellicle Ball. When asked who his favorite cat was, the Rum Tum Tugger won hands down.

The Rum Tum Tugger is a curious cat
And there isn't any need for me to spout it
For he will do as he do do
And there's no doing anything about it!
