The Truth about Goats

The return of Cats and Evita bring back memories of the Blitz

Thousands of Londoners have been filmed leaving the capital in fear for their Musical sanity, as rumours surface that Andrew Lloyd Webber intends to carpet bomb the West End with ‘theatrical turds’ from the 1980s. Not since the Great Fire of 1666, have some many people abandoned their homes so readily. One eye witness reported seeing a father of three, throw his young daughters into the Thames rather than expose them to ‘Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’.

The calm before the storm

The calm before the storm

Refugees clutching tickets for ‘A Book of Mormon’ attest to being ‘shell shocked’ that such ‘a pile of steaming offal’ should return to London’s theatre land. About as welcome as plague rat nipping into harbour, this rancid duo of Musical triteness are set to expose the public to a new generation of Wayne Sleeps and Bonnie Langfords. While Hitler may have bombed London 71 times in 267 days, Cats alone has bombed in front of over 50 million people worldwide.

Children have been sent away from their families to either live in the countryside or at least stay with someone with season tickets to the Royal Court or National Theatres. The people of Coventry have already volunteered to ‘burn their cathedral to the ground’ if Cameron Mackintosh promises not to bring the shows north of the Watford gap.

The V-1 ‘doodlebug’ bomb with its familiar strange tearing and rasping sound will be accurately replaced by Elaine Paige singing ‘Memory’. Cats itself will run for 12 weeks at the London Palladium, while the populace will run in any direction they can. One veteran remarked: ‘I didn’t fight in a World War to have Nazi’s marching through the streets of London or people dressed in a cat unitard.’

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
