Seriously, I don't get why Cats is so popular. I watched it recently on DVD and enjoy it (despite the 20 minute plotless chasm of dance), but it dosen't seem like a musical that would ever be popular let alone run on Broadway for 18 years. How popular was T.S. Elliott and his Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats? Did a lot of the popularity of Cats stem from the fact that it was based on these poems? Was it just a devine fluke that a musical with the barest thread thin plot became so popular? The majority of it was just a long string of introductions with a sparse plot sprinkled lightly throughout. The end of the musical was about how to address a cat, which one would think would come in the beginning and it was also unrelated to the plot. I think ultimately that it was so over the top people couldn't help but love it, and I think thats what kinda happened to me.
