Has anyone watched the original Cats and/or Phantom of the Opera starring Sarah Brightman?
How was your experience of the performance? Was it magical?
I was not lucky enough to see the original cast in London, but I did manage to watch Sarah Brightman and Michael Crawford perform in the 1988 Tony Awards. This is available on YouTube to watch.
I owned a double cassette tape recording of the original London production and listened to it over and over again often joining in the singing. Sarah's voice is beautiful and she inspired me to sing "Think of me" in a local eisteddfod when I was 17 (1988 too). I have seen the theatre show three times now, once in Sydney (Australia), once in the Albert Theatre in London and once in Brisbane (Australia) but all with different casts.
I've also enjoyed listening and watching a televised version of "Song and Dance" also composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber where his brother Julian Lloyd Webber plays cello and Sarah sings. If you like listening to Sarah in Phantom, you'll also enjoy her voice in Song and Dance.
As for Cats, I had the originally Australian recording which didn't include Sarah. I did get to see Cats in New York in the week it finally closed on Broadway in 2000.

These supporters of Sarah Palin must know something I don't know, if so please enlighten me. Otherwise all I have seen from this women is incompetence. In my opinion, this women might be the most unqualified presidential hopeful in the history of the United States of America. We...

Ok, so Sarah Palin got paid beaucoup denaro to speak at University of California UC) Stanislaus. God forbid the controversy leading up (protests) and coverage of the speech itself should be "enough" for the media. Oh no! Our local NBC affiliate is looking and sounding more Fox-like every...
