Trailer: Cats (2019)

The second trailer for Cats has landed and I have to admit that although I am super excited for the film regardless of what everyone is saying about the film. I found the first trailer to be better than this one though. But I guess if you haven’t seen the stage show before then it gives you a little bit about the story (although it doesn’t really have much of a story).

Cineworld Secret Screening 13 – Possible Films

563AB294-6FC0-45BF-AEB7-1D83CC84A3C8

Date: Tuesday 3rd December 2019

We are back to the Secret Unlimited Screening and now up to number 13, after Cineworld branching out to a secret screening that was for everyone.

As always remember that while Cineworld list the film as 15 and running time of 90 minutes, this is never the correct running time and 15 is just incase meaning it could actually be anything from a U (Incredibles 2) up to a 15! 

Let’s take a look at the possible films that this secret screening could be. It certainly WILL NOT be Star Wars so if you go expecting that please just stay home!

Trailer: Cats (2019)

The musical Cats was one of the longest running of all time in the West End and has countless tours over the years, as well as being on Broadway. I’ve seen the show three times over the years and do enjoy it, with the impressive dancing and memorable songs.

A film version was always going to be a little strange in a different way really as making people look and act like Cats isn’t exactly normal. I know the initial reactions to this trailer haven’t been good but I am actually rather impressed with the way they have done it. Plus we get Jennifer Hudson singing Memory and that is going to be amazing!

2014 at the Theatre

In 2014 I managed to go and see 15 musicals and plays on stage in both the North East (Sunderland Empire or Theatre Newcastle) as well as trips to London to see them in the West End. I also caught Monty Python and a concert of Elaine Paige. It has been an incredible year for going to see plenty of shows and live acting. I honestly didn’t realise I had seen so many until getting ready to do this blog post.

Along with seeing an absolute icon in Elaine Paige in her farewell concert, I also managed a last-minute trip to see the legend of Angela Lansbury on her return to the West End after 30 years in Blithe Spirit. But it doesn’t stop there, I got to meet one of my favourite actors Bill Nighy after the incredible Skylight and an added bonus of Carey Mulligan! What a day that was.

Cats (UK Tour) Review

The memory returned to the North East again, this time it has been in Newcastle at the Theatre Royal for two weeks and I caught the final performance on Saturday night. This is the second time I have seen this production after seeing it at the Sunderland Empire in May 2013. Most of the cast were the same and that is such a good thing, the only noticeable change for me was someone different taking on the very difficult role of the Rum Tum Tugger. This was a bit of a shame as the current actor taking on that part isn’t quite as good as the one who was in the tour back when I saw it last year.
