When I was 10, I was “cast” in a little blip of a rendition of Cats at my elementary school. It was my first dance performance, and to prepare for the role, I checked out an old VHS copy of the broadway play. I remember watching it on my clunky bedroom tv while laying on the foot of my bed, totally captured by the costumes, the voices, the way the choreographer had so phenomenally mimicked the feline nature through movement and dance. I proceeded to watch it every night until it was due back to the library.
I’ve always dreamed of seeing it live. And this week I got to. I won’t lie to you and say I kept a dry eye. I’m still in love, all these years later.
