Yes, but I persevered, I love MOST live theater but this was a slog.

What was your favorite part about CATS?

Memory and the end.

I think the part when the cats came into the audience was the best. It startled me, but then I went back to sleep! 😝

I kind of feel bad for the actors. They are the ones who have to see all of the sleeping beauties all of the time.

Glad you asked. 

 

Rum Tug Tugger dancing with the audience. Usually a child.

Victoria was my first love, but she doesn't sing.

Sillabub opening of memory is haunting.  She is sometimes called Jemima

Bombalurina is my favorite of the female cats. This is the Taylor Swift role in the new movie

Saw it last night.

It doesn’t warrant people walking out before the first song is over! 

Standing ovation at the end from those who stayed!  Like the cats 🐈 mixing with the audience

Can u please ask entertainment staff if Cats is staying after dry dock?  

Yes it is with new cast.

 

Oasis of Dreams aquashow has already changed to Aquanation ( similar to the show on Symphony)

And a shorter show from what I hear.

The guy I spoke with from the Entertainment team told me it was exactly the same 🤷‍♀️

John once again our Cats opinions align! I love Bomba! Here in your pictures she is played by Charlotte Reavey.

 

I too loved the crowd interactions of Tugger in this version (something missed on Broadway.) In your photos he is played by Dale Evans.

I've always really enjoyed Oceanaria and Oasis of Dreams. Not so much the Fine Line on Harmony. Hiro on Symphony was in the middle for me.

It was good on Symphony. I understand that the Oasis version is not the same. Hope to see it tonight but it has been a horrid day here in Marseilles... rain wind thunder lightening...

I liked oasis show, I thought symphony was ok. Oasis was better. Ugh about Cats. I tortured myself once for the whole show.

See, that's where a Playbill would come in handy. List the characters, cast, songs, maybe a brief synopsis.  Can't be that big a deal. I certainly get enough garbage in our Compass delivery as it is.

Ugh!!! 

 

Another strike against the Oasis Refurb. Wasn’t fond of HIRO on Symphony. Way too much drum banging and not enough use of the AQUAtheatre. I left feeling the show could have been in the the main theatre. 

 

Not or fond of FineLine on Harmony for the same reason. 

 

Sure wish I knew who makes these decisions.

Agreed! Though in SOME of their defense, before the show, they do put slides up of the cast with some of their bio listed. Not enough in my opinion, but it is something. This is something that I missed on other ships in all of the shows.

Personally I liked Hiro best.  Seeing Oasis of Dreams a few months later was a stark awareness how dated the Oasis AquaTheater was in comparison to Symphony's AquaTheater where they use more technology.  This was prior to the crane accident.    Nick weir has announced they are adding projection mapping to the Oasis AquaTheater during the AMP so it shouldn't feel as dated anymore.  

 

I could sense a distinct progression over the years, the Oasis show just felt simplistic and old after seeing the Aqua show on Symphony.

As long as they actually dive in the show... unlike Fine Line.
