AP article by Michael Kuchwara, noting the end of "Cats" long run on Broadway:<P>""Cats," Broadway's longest running show, has become as much a "Memory" as the song that was its most persistent refrain. <P>After a nearly 18-year run, the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical closed with a roar Sunday at the Winter Garden Theater before an invited audience of friends and fans. <P>They cheered, screamed and even cried during an emotional, confetti-strewn final performance - number 7,485 - that was interrupted by several standing ovations."<P>See the rest of the article here: <A HREF="http://news.excite.com/news/ap/000911/02/cats-farewell" TARGET=_blank>http://news.excite.com/news/ap/000911/02/cats-farewell</A>

Here are links to a couple of earlier topics where 'Cats' was discussed:<P> <A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum6/HTML/000007.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum6/HTML/000007.html</A> <P> <A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum6/HTML/000005.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum6/HTML/000005.html</A> <P>The show caused a real stir when it first opened here in London. The feeling now seems to be that the life has gone out of the show, despite regular cast changes. <P>Have any of our current readers seen it? <BR>

I saw it in London when I was eleven. I can't remember if it was the first night we were in the area or if we drove in from the places in the outskirts where we were staying. Regardless, I remember feeling funny from flying for so long and from the excitement of being someplace so new to me.<P>The theater was roundish and I remember pretty much being able to see everything, but was so tired I don't think it stuck well in my memory. Instead, it's like a really vivid dream, with a much better soundtrack than usual. While I know I enjoyed it, seeing Cats is more a notch in the belt of Neat Things I've Done than a life-altering experience. <P>Still have the cassette tapes of the songs, and listen to it sometimes.
