(Orchestra perspective on adaptions) Back in college, I performed in a pit orchestra with the real score of Sweeney Todd (not simplified for high school etc). We were coached for months especially on the intricate harmonies and important lines to what was happening on stage. This was especially important because we would never see the performers while playing. We performed in an incredibly warm, dark, cramped, and tiny box under the with only the director to guide us... We couldn't even hear the performers sing due to how the acoustics worked. The result, as a musician, was a mix of the intense emotions you feel when you hear that one song that always gets to your heart (whatever it is) and the incredible mental/sensory focus when playing a very tough video game or team sporting event (for those who aren't familiar). Nostalgia aside, we had practiced for months and could tell you academically which parts and lines of songs are emotionally important but also FEEL it due to the intense practice. I didn't watch the film adaptation (that literally all my theater friends had raved over and idolized during high school) until a month or so after we had done our extended run of the show. If I had to give a visual... It felt like watching someone do a beautiful, emotional dance routine in front of you... But their legs and feet from the knee down had been removed. Like, try to picture what that does to the dance. (Note: This is not meant to demean dancers with disabilities. This is merely a visualization of how jarring the experience was.) I couldn't unhear it after the first song. The emotional lines we had been pushed so hard to evoke to push home the singer's performance were literally faded out so low or entirely muted just before you could hear them so Johnny Depp (or another singer) could sing or even SPEAK them over a silent or near silent background... probably because they find this more dramatic in cinema. I have no idea what the majority consensus is on this film among people who studied voice and/or theater in college or perform this musical professionally but uh... it's been years and I'll never watch the film again. It hurts too much.

Also, I'm fully aware that there could be fabulous adaptations of musical scores in film but I didn't perform enough scores before changing career paths to know. And for a background, I had performed several musicals before and I just can't stand most of them. (YEAH, IM LOOKING AT YOU RODGERS AND HAMMERSTEIN! 🤮)

51:32 -- "If you can't get T.S. Eliot, get T.S." -- Yikes! And I thought the Rum Tum Tugger was full of himself! And "Beautiful Ghosts" is SO banal in its sentimentality -- It does NOT belong in CATS! ... 'Cause the thing is, even though "Memory"'s lyrics are by Trevor Nunn, he drew from a lot of bits and pieces from Eliot's other works, so "Memory" is at least in the spirit of T.S. Eliot. And everything else in CATS is drawn almost word-for-word from Eliot, either "Old Possum" or a host of unpublished material that Eliot's widow generously shared with A.L. Webber. So in the movie, "Beautiful Ghosts", with no connection whatsoever with Eliot, is even more of an odd man out. And don't get me started on the extent that throughout the film it keeps trying to steal "Memory"'s thunder...

49:24 -- The thing that really annoyed me about Gus in the movie is that in the original show (and the even more original Eliot poem for that matter) a large chunk of his song IS in first-person -- "I have played in my time every possible part...", &c. But do they give that to Ian? Nope! They give him the part that's in THIRD person! Logical! And I happen to think he was the best casting in the whole movie -- He makes a great Gus! But the director and screenwriters ruin what could have been a great scene.

Tbh I never got along with the theater kids at my school. I liked punk and jazz. They were always the ones in harmony class being like "MUSIC IS PURE EMOTION. ALL I KNOW IS GENERIC STUFF FROM MUSICALS, AND ITS PURE EMOTION!", and it left me to being one of the only ones just asking the teacher for actual info and wanting to learn more about music, asking stuff like "hey, can you just like show me how I should approach utilizing music theory when I write?" Or "hey can you explain what a parallel fourth is?" Or "how I can branch out and start learning jazz theory?". The theater kids I went to school with were always busy just stroking the egoz and being obsessed with the idea of being "so DEEP" and assumed they were the best about everything, and tbh they just couldn't be creative. It felt like music was just a celebration of the ego to them. I'm not trying to sound like I think I'm a genius or anything, my main point is that unlike the kids at my school that were into theater, I sure as sh*t always felt there was something to learn or improve on. They pretended they knew "everything", I always felt I needed to learn more. I always look back to this argument I had with one girl, the beatles got brought up and I basically said I had a hard time picking a favorite album because I originally liked abbey road the most but I had overplayed it and so I was finding I really liked Sgt Pepper the most at the moment, and she literally tried to scold me and cursed me out becaus as she said "ABBEY ROAD IS THE BEST ALBUM EVER MADE. YOU'RE AN IDIOT AND YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT MUSIC", as though I had said abbey road was bad or something. I literally prefaced my statement about abbey road with the fact that it was the album that got me to love the beatles and so it was the one I respected the most even though I couldn't listen to it anymore and was more listening to Sgt Pepper. Tbh her freaking out about abbey road made me want to listen to it less too, it was seriously infuriating to get yelled at over something where I didn't even trash on abbey road and I actually had only complemented the album

Why why WHYYYYYYYY did no one hear Tom Hooper saying he wants to bring realism and groundedness into Cats and say that is a terrible idea??? Bringing reality into Cats would be like bringing slapstick humor into Schindler's List. You just can't do that. At least not without bringing some unholy nightmare into being.

This show is for dancers, we tend to be ride or die if we like this show. Getting cast as Victoria is a brag in the theater dance world. It's mostly dancing and there's really only one part that requires a really good singing voice. Most of the other songs you can get away with speak-singing.

The "Why?" of the musical is simple, it evokes all of the personalities that cat-owners perceive in their felines. That's what is at the heart of the poems, and at the heart of the musical. It's also why the ridiculous costumes and the anthropomorphism work in the musical; cat-owners already perceive a "person" in their pet and the musical just registers that fact in an enhanced key that works perfectly with a heightened sense of absurdity, whimsy, etc. It's very similar to Kayfabe; cat-owners KNOW that their cats aren't people, but they play as if they are. Musical captures that right in a bottle. The movie, on the hand, takes the Cats-Kayfabe as literal and basically presents the viewer not with human personalities dressed up as cats, but with literal cat-human hybrids. It kills everything and generates an instant "yeck" response.

Hey gamers. Just wanna tell yall a little story about cats the musical. When I was in elementary school my parents would play in the pit orchestras for some local theater productions since they were both band kids in college and played a lot of instruments. As a result of this hobby/gig for some extra cash of theirs, they had to drag my brother, my sister, and I along to see the shows they were a part of, since they didn't want to hire a babysitter or maybe they thought it'd be fun. On not one, not two, but fucking three separate occasions they played in a production of Cats the musical. And oh boy, let me tell you this. The actors, even local theater actors, that are willing to perform in cats the musical, they perform with the same horrific vigor you all saw in the 2019 movie. And they got close, up close and real personal, touchy even. Nothing is more traumatizing than being 7 years old, wanting a cat really bad and being obsessed with the cute little animals, hearing there's a musical about cats, only for 28+ year old men in skin tight fur suits with painted faces to crawl around on all fours up and down the isles, grabbing your shoulders, and seductively staring into your eyes while they sing and dance. ONLY FOR YOU TO THEN BE TOLD A FEW MONTHS LATER THAT YOU HAD TO GO EXPERIENCE THAT AGAIN BECAUSE YOUR PARENTS WERE PLAYING IN ANOTHER PRODUCTION OF THE SAME GOD DAMN SHOW. The horrors of the 2019 film are real, world wide, cursed productions of this abomination happen again and again and they scare the fuck out of kids every time.

I feel problem with such movies as with a lot of things is that just like just about everything else, the "professionals" or the Emmy judges decide what wins awards and praise. People or things with heart and love instead of pretty faces and money are overlooked. Even though we vote with our money and support (as far as movies are concerned anyway) it is always the opinions of individuals detached from the normal folks that mean the most. Awards mean so little in my opinion but they matter so much to the future of media that we get pure shite instead of the real meaning or lack thereof of meaning like Cats the Movie. I loved the musical in the 90s and still remember most of the nonsensical songs and characters but that is what it was supposed to be...It was so people could enjoy the music and dancing of really talented people in a somewhat real but mostly fantastical world. Our actors in this film for the most part were not good at dancing or singing. It is a musical FFS. Take those things out that people enjoy and we have a bunch of adults dressed as cats LARPing in the cheesiest ways while trying to get the spotlight. Look at me, look at me! It was like a fight to be the creepiest adult in a cat costume. 😆

alright, in thinking about the two sir andrew lloyd webber movies you’ve covered iirc only being phantom and cats, i can’t help but feel the directors for both films would have been so much more suited at making the other ones film. the gratuitous stylization and cheesy and spectacle of a schumacher film would have gelled perfectly with the glitz and pure spectacle of cats (and you know that man would’ve used his nipple fascination to weird extents in cats but different plate of cookies for a different glass of milk) meanwhile hooper would have been able to up the realism and melodrama as he is known to for phantom easily, likely taking the music to a much more theatrical and elegant early edwardian gothic feel. while i hate the way he has his actors work (les mes comes to mind) i feel like it can be said his more realistic approach to musicals would likely have benefitted a phantom adaptation. i would be interested in what he would do with music of the night and angel if music. or just scrap them both completely and give them shits the mulan rouge treatment of embracing the inherent absurdity of the musical and indulging the audience in the gratuitous and decadent spectacle and melodrama

Thanks to unexpected SEpost suggestions, yesterday I started watching The Royal Ballet's production of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Something looked familiar about Alice, and while rewatching THIS video, and I realized the clip shown at 26:12 is from that ballet production. Cool! I also think it's interesting that the point Lindsay is making in that section - that the medium is the message - uses a video clip of a ballet of Alice in Wonderland, which was originally a book, and then was adapted many times into movies, plays, and other retellings.
