Those yellow eyes stared at you from the marquee of the Wintergarden Theater for years. And long after the show closed, I'd find myself looking for those eyes every time I walked near that theater.
I had two cast albums, the original London cast and the Broadway cast, I had the Broadway album memorized, and I could tell you, in glorious detail, what was changed when the show came across the pond.
I saw the show three times during its record-breaking run. I loved the video production that was done in 1998.
I actually named my cat "Mr. Mistoffelees".
I am pleased to know that the revival is coming to Broadway in the fall.
