    Idris? In a…………….musical?

    • Megan says:

      Not a fan of musicals, but I will make an exception.

    • Veronica S. says:

      He actually started in music, didn’t he? DJing, I think, and he’s released music before. So not that much of a stretch.

      Swift on the other hand…

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        Because it’s Idris, I really wish I liked musicals. But I don’t simply dislike them; I abhor them. They give me physical symptoms lol.

    • Mia4s says:

      Musical sure……but Cats?!?

      Although every time I want to laugh or cringe I remember just how insanely successful this awful musical was. To each their own I guess. 🤷‍♀️

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      My first reaction, too–but he is my eternal boo and I will go see anything with him in it, even (gulp) “Cats”! In my entire life, I have never been such a crazy fangirl as I am for Idris. He’s amazing in Luther on Netflix, btw.

      When Mr. Lahdidah asked me what I like so much about Idris (um, seriously, anyone would actually need to ask that?), I accidentally said that I thought Idris and I would look really good together. Oy. Lucky Mr. L. isn’t the jealous type. He just chuckled.

      “What!” I asked.

      “Nothin,” he said, “you WOULD look good together…like THAT’S ever gonna happen.”

      Mr. Lahdidah is a pragmatist, so he doesn’t get jealous over fantasies.

    Stories like this make me really miss Sixer.

    • Mel M says:

      There were a few months I didn’t get on much and then when I started coming back daily I noticed her gone. Anyone know anything about it?

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      I miss her, too, and I always still look for her posts, especially on Brit topics. Is she okay, Lightpurple?

    • Aquarius says:

      I’m glad someone else asked this! I’m a long-time quiet reader/rare poster, and I’d wondered where Sixer had gone after I’d taken a bit of an internet hiatus, came back, and saw that she wasn’t posting anymore. I hope that she and her family are well. I always enjoyed her posts (and those of other regular commenters, too).

    • Cranberry says:

      Hello people. That’s funny, I’ve also been thinking of Sixer. She seemed to be quite active with community and politics. I’ve wondered how it’s been on the ground over there with Brexit and all the ugly fallout. We in the US are obviously going through a lot, and so much has changed so fast. It’s hard to know exactly how things are with our friends and “allies” with the far Right encroaching into governments across EU and else where too. Hang in there friends and stay safe.

  3. Chaine says:

    this musical adaptation seems approximately 30 years too late?? will people go to see it?

  4. Meadow says:

    According to IMDB, he’s Macavity and Ian Mckellan is Gus, which is just perfect.

  5. Mina says:

    That Cats movie is gathering up an intriguing cast. Too bad it’s such a bad musical.

    Re: Bryan Singer
    Whose rights are ignored even more than women’s?
    The LGBTQ community

  7. RBC says:

    Bryan Singer must have some very powerful people protecting him or implicated in some way. Can’t understand why he has not been taken down yet.

    • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

      Because he gave all of the parties………he knows all dirt and who buried it. Kevin Spacey was a GUEST at the parties……..so yea. He’s not going down unless someone big enough starts talking.

  8. Lisa says:

    Where did Sixer go?

    • HelloSunshine says:

      Would also love to know this! I always enjoyed Sixer’s comments and looked forward to them. Hope all is well in the Sixer household

  9. Cat says:

    Hideous musical, and the ending is so obvious. When I so it, I was so disappointed. I don’t see how any cast can save such a bad musical.

    • Amanduh says:

      I saw the musical and made eye contact with a cat/dude that came out into the crowd and I’ve never felt such second-hand embarrassment in all my life!!!
