Unforgettable Meowments - CATS @MBS

Everybody wants to be a cat!

CATS - One of the world's greatest musicals sashays its way back in Singapore. If you haven't heard of CATS, you've really got to be kitten me. *wink*

Intermissions are the best times for a little pose and snap! Don't say I didn't tell ya.

Adapted from T.S. Eliot's book of poems, "Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats” (1939), this is the tale of the Jellicle Cats on the night of the Jellicle Ball - where one of them will be chosen to ascend to the Heavyside layer (Cat Heaven), to be reborn again.

Top 5 reasons why I am purr-suading you to check it out:

1. The musical score was composed by the one and only Andrew Lloyd Webber of The Phantom of the Opera, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Evita, Starlight Express and Jesus Christ Superstar fame. Nodding your head now aren't you?

2. Meow-nificient dance moves. Tap dancing, ballet jumps, and some gravity-defying stunts that's sure to make you jump and do a jig yourself!

3. Get pounced on by cast members as they bring the action off the stage and right to you at your seat. One little girl did a little squeal of glee when a Jellicle cat landed right next to her! The anthropomorphic cat immediately leaped a few seats away in astonishing agility. How cat-hletic indeed.

4. The voices. Reinvent your purr-ception of cats who can sing! Witness the spectacular headline song, "Memory" sung so purr-fectly that you'll dreaming of it during your catnaps with a wide grin on your face.

5. Humour galore. Laugh and be tickled by the lovable antics of the flamboyant Rum Tum Tugger, the magical Mr. Mistoffelees, fluffy Jennyanydots, wise-old Old Deuteronomy, once-a-glamourpuss Grizabella and Skimbleshanks the railway cat.

I was filled with wonderment and awe at CATS and its carnival-like experience. With not a dull moment to spare, its tenacity and ferocity is sure to keep you watching and eager to find out who among the cats were to be selected for the pending rebirth.

Tune into a barrier breaking performance of CATS from now until the 25th of January 2015!

A fun fact: Did you know that Nicole Scherzinger plays Grizabella in Cats at the London Palladium, UK? Well, the former Pussycat Doll certainly has some awesome vocal prowess and I would have loved to see her perform Memory in Singapore. Till then, catch this equally magical international production right here with more details at the bottom. 

With the bro.
