Will “Cats” be the next big musical on the big screen?
As many of us theatre kids know- Cats is already a very popular musical, and even people who don’t know the musical can easily belt “Memory” off the top of their heads. When I saw this post on Broadway.com I knew I HAD to comment on it. This is very intresting to me because I’m currently in a production of Cats. But I just don’t know if the average audience member would appreciate Cats as much as the next theatre kid would. If you are familiar with Cats– you know that its is very different from anything you’ve ever seen because there is no plot at all- just random stories about random cats…do you think audiences are ready for that on the big screen? On the other hand- the most recent movie- musical phenomenon was Les Miserables which was very popular with theatre kids- and non theatre kids as well- and maybe that’s just because Les Mis is flawless and Aaron Teviet and Eddie Redmayne are just adorable…
Well, what do you think? Will Cats sell in movie theatres”? Are you excited for it?
SIDE NOTE: The next movie musical is Into the Woods which Disney is producing and I’m absolutely so excited…I think theatres making a popular comeback tbh and I couldn’t be happier (“simply couldn’t be happier….”) haha!
