You don’t understand. I was surrounded by crying women in the theater for Wonder Woman. The lady right next to me was actually sobbing, and expressed how happy she was that the film had a female director.
do you ever just… think about how “memory,” often considered to be one of the greatest songs in musical theater history, an iconic song for female actresses and musicians alike, a song with some genuinely gorgeous lyrics and often an equally gorgeous voice singing it…
…came out of “cats”?
like… seriously, HOW??? how did they manage to squeeze a song that amazing and iconic out of a show THIS ridiculous? and wtf even IS a “jellicle cat”??? what does that MEAN, lord andy??? the masses demand to know!
(and yes i realize half of these gifs are of tugger, but i feel like watching his number alone will be more than enough to explain how ridiculous this musical is. if you’ve never seen it, just imagine like… if michael jackson and elvis ever reproduced… and it was a cat for some reason.)
In 2007 Jada Pinkett Smith donated $1 million to the Baltimore School for the Arts, asking that its new theater be dedicated to classmate Tupac Shakur, who was murdered in 1996. The donation from the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation, which is based in Baltimore was used for renovation and expansion. Jada
wanted the theater named for Tupac because of the friendship they developed at the school.
