Blugh. How Webber could do Phantom and Cats is beyond me. I have never gotten this play. "Memories" is the only okay song, and the plot was just so meandering I always fall asleep in the middle.

It's basically Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats with colorful pictures from the original Broadway cast. But it's fun to read and the pics are fun and colorful and pretty!!
Gives a clear libretto of the 1982 musical cats!
