Expose yourself to these Chernobylesque toxic trailers at your own risk.

I never went to see it at the theatre, and I'm not going to see the film.

That was the case before I even knew they were making a film.

Btw, the greatest musical of all time was The Blues Brothers.

@izzythepush,
I remember when Eric was about 8 or 9 and we thought we really should drag him out to the legit theater and other venues (you know, well rounded) One of my friends from work could not stop raving about "Cats"...... bought tickets and we headed to the Kennedy Center in D.C. for this exquisite event. I remember seeing really old women wearing those 'hats' the rhinstone encrusted head things that 'flappers' wore in the 20's....I remember wondering how could these women still be alive in 1980????

Well we climbed up to the nosebleed section, and the whole thing was stultifying....There was one song that was worth hearing.....I suppose....I'm just grateful I didn't stunt my child's interest in music...........he eventually forgave us.

@izzythepush,
I do love the Blues Brothers, especially the car chase thru the Mall.

Never read the T.S. Elliot ... PracticalCats, never saw the Broadway musical, never had an interest in watching a bunch of weirdo, often overpaid 'actors' prancing around in cat outfits for schmucks shelling out upwards of a hundred dollars per show.


Don't intend to see the movie either.
(in case there was any doubt)

@farmerman,
He sounds too much like a song by The Cure.
