Sunset Boulevard at Drury Lane Theatre just didn't go far enough for me -- and I think Osetek and company could have gone for the grotesque without sacrificing the truth of the story. In other words, shocking doesn't have to be campy.

When Jesus has died for your sins and the bright lights break out and the orchestra plays the triumphant "da-da-dum" of the title song and the actor playing Jesus strides in blazing white to the front of the stage, you can't help but feel it would be churlish not to rise to your feet, whatever you thought of the show.

We know that cats have nine lives. "Cats," based on T.S. Eliot's "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats," with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, with additional lyrics by Trevor Nunn, shows us how this process of reincarnation works.
