I hope those people found what they were looking for!
What's on your mind?
I'm quite new here, and I have a disproportionate amount of information about the various translations of the names of Cats characters in Finnish. Most of this information is not on the wiki yet, as I have been able to find three separate Finnish translations for Cats!
What's the policy here about adding translations of these names? If I want to explain the translation, where would I put that? Are we only adding translations that have reliably been used in productions of this musical, or is there a place for adding translations of Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats as well?
I have lots to share but I want to make sure that the information is going in the proper place, first. Furthermore, I noticed some mistakes in reporting the Finnish translations on here as well (such as different translations getting mixed up.)
So, the second trailer's out.... does someone want to write up a description for the Movie page? We should also expand the heading for the first trailer, with what is actually in the trailer rather than relying on the video links!
Does anyone have a Broadway playbill from 1985 that has Brian Andrews listed as playing Plato/Macavity/Rumpus Cat? If u have it, do u mind sharing the full cast list? I saw one online awhile ago but can’t find it now.

I saw the show live for the first time the other night on the US tour, and decided while traffic was thinning out to meet some of the cast at the stage door. But, I had a bit of a problem in that without the makeup, I had no idea who was who for the most part. The first few I flat out asked 'and you were...?' in a hope they would fill in the blank so I could engage them more meaningfully and they didn't seem to mind answering...but I got a bit paranoid I was breaking some unwritten rule and offending them without meaning to and decided I would later play 'match the signature with a role.'
Is this a normal problem with the show, or does the cast actually expect to be recognized out of costume for the most part?

Okay so i am aware that there are already separate tabs for the 2019 film and non film versions of the characters, but considering the movie will likely VASTLY change/ add things to the overall canon i think we should make a clear distinction between what is movie canon and what is play canon once it is released. This probably entails making new pages for things such as plot, headcanons, and other general lore along with the individual character pages.
I feel putting extra work into the separation will be better for long time fans who dislike whatever changes the movie makes, and it will stop any superiority complexes people might develop because "their headcanon was in the movie so its canon across the board now".
Just a thought moving forwards as more info on the movie is released!
When I went and saw the 2016 Broadway Revival Of Cats in 2017, I noticed lyrics had been changed in The Gumbie Cat Song. They had completely gotten rid of this lyric " and she's even created a Beatles Tattoo! ". They had instead replaced it with a new lyric I had never heard. But I couldn't understand what they had sang. Does anyone know the new lyrics added to The Gumbie Cat? Thank you! It's been driving me crazy.
While at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta,The U.S Tour 6 has achieved the highest grossing week in Cats 38-year worldwide history! Congratulations to all the whole company of Cats U.S Tour 6! They are simply amazing! What a great milestone! The previous record was held by The 2016 Broadway Revival of Cats when it had it's final week of performances.
I believe the publicity of the New Cats Movie has helped the shows ever increasing popularity. If anything,This new upcoming cats movie has peaked peoples interests. I'm excited to see what other milestones this show may achieve in the near future 💜
So on production pages, we have the production credits list - important information without a doubt. But it is generally duplicated in the infobox. Really we only need the credits listed once - should it be in the infobox, or in the body of the article?
So there's the 1998 recording - the live show filmed for video release. It's referred to as the movie, film, or video.
And now we're getting a 2019 Hollywood adaption directed by Tom Hooper, featuring a load of A list celebrities in apparently random roles.
It seems to me, that we need to not refer to both of these as "The Cats Movie" because they're very, very different productions! So, what titles do we use for them? How do we refer to the casts?
So, I've seen a lot of debate on Bombalurina and Demter's relationship, however I checked the official CATS website and there's a section on the cats and it does say that they are, in fact, just friends. Never specifies them being sisters or mates. Quote from the website: "...these two beautiful Jellicle Queens are best friends and are rarely seen apart…".

Anyone know of any Cut Songs or Demos from Cats?
Last saw it in Madison, WI at the Overture Center in 2007, I was Seven (going on eight). Afterwards we got in a car crash. Souvenior Brochere got ruined, but still intact. (I still have it!)
Now, this Saturday, a High School near me in putting on Cats! 10 Years Later, I will finally be able to see it on stage again! So excited.
Anyone else seen Cats recently?
Hi! I run the Little Shop of Horrors wiki (we're allies with the Cats Wiki), I'm not trying to convert anybody here, but is anyone interested in helping me out at my wiki? We're understaffed and have lots to do.....
