Andrew Lloyd Webber, T. S. Elliot - Edgar, Le Chat ferroviaire (Thierry Gondet)
10 plays

Edgar, Le Chat ferroviaire" from Cats (Version Français Intégrale, 1989)

music Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyric T. S. Elliot (translator unknown)

performance Thierry Gondet

In anticipation of upcoming trip to CATS in Pittsburgh, I dusted off the French cast recording I bought on a trip to France by Junior year of High School. While all the names of cats that are NOT the subjects of songs were mostly kept the same, many of the most popular cats got amusing name changes: Jellicles became Jalupates, Old Deuteronomy became “Mathusalem”, Jenny Anydonts became “Amile Ron Ron”, the Rum Tum Tugger became “Rocky Tam Tam”…and then they gave up at Skimbleshanks and just renamed him Edgar. He’s still the best cast.

I really wish the show was called “Les Chats” though.

pricew:

Possibly the only thing I like about Cats is the vocal arrangements, which are brilliant.

Btw, I’m going to Pittsburgh tomorrow to see Cats because ELIZABETH STANLEY IS PLAYING GRISABELLA (or as my bf likes to call her, Grizzamatazz).

the bf doesn’t really know what he’s in for, but his response to my rendition of “jelli-CAL songs for jellicle cats, jellicle songs for JEL-licle cats, jelli-CAL songs for jellicle cats, jellicle SONGS for jellicle CATS” was a mix of horror/”what’s a jellicle cat?”

There’s bad and then there’s 2010 A Little Night Music revival recording bad.

HOW WAS IT EVEN POSSIBLE TO SING IT THAT SLOWLY

Beth Malone & Michael Cerveris - Telephone Wire

Once again, if you aren;t listening to Fun Home right now, that is time wasted! This show has really climbed up my ladder of favorites, and it’s so fucking heartbreaking.

I’m LOVING this score.

Hey everybody. I have started a new blog! I believe this will also mean more (or at least more focused) me2ism here!

Dear Tumblr,

I know it’s been a while since we’ve really chatted, but I thought I should leave this here. Just because.
