Cats Creates Memories at NJPAC in Newark, New Jersey

By: Roxy on 11/23/08 @ 2:02 pm

Midnight, not a sound from the pavement
Has the moon lost her memory
She is smiling alone.
In the lamplight the withered
leaves collect at my feet
And the wind begins to moan.
After weeks of anticipation, listening to the Complete Original Broadway Cast Recording of Cats and learning the songs, the big day had finally arrived. On Saturday afternoon, Rex, [...]

By: Roxy on 11/6/08 @ 10:05 pm

Are you blind when you’re born? Can you see in the dark?
Dare you look look at a king? Would you sit on his throne?
Can you say of your bite that it’s worse than your bark?
Are you cock of the walk when you’re walking alone?
