  • Not sure where to suggest this, but I saw you were an admin so I suppose this'll work...

    Just an idea, but what do you think about adding a brief description of the set's design and layout somewhere in the 'The Sets' article? As in, describe the overall layout of the set and naming some of the more prominent features (e.g. the car boot/trunk, the number plate, the oven, etc.). It'd certainly be an interesting addition to the article other than just listing the history of the sets...

    • yes I suppose this would work.  You also have the option of a blog post to discuss ideas, and throw the discussion open to all editors. There is also a forum, but it tends to be rather glitchy and doesn't always show new posts.

      Yes, more details about the sets would be good, a "Virtual tour" around the set.  I'd be inclined to start as if centre stage looking downstage, then working clockwise around the set. There's probably enough detailed photos of each major production.  It'd make sense to start with the original, although Broadway and subsequent sets were notably different.  But with the original set detailled, it would then be easy enough to point out notable differences in later sets. This information will tie in with who made the set in question - Raymond Huessy is responsible for a lot of the sets - how similar are his sets, what are the signature pieces?  What has been changed over time with one set?

      The big one to puzzle out would be the specifics for NAP 16 / NAP 19 / Palladium (NAP 70 v1) / Broadway - NAP 16 and NAP 19 were merged for the Palladium production (I was taken backstage and saw the crates of left-over pieces) but I'm not sure exactly what was taken from which to create the Palladium set.  And then, what, if anything, was added or replaced for the Broadway run?

      Incidentally, I can't remember off the top of my head if it's mentioned in the article, "NAP 70" is for John Napier's 70th birthday, not sequential!  I don't think there's been 70 different sets built for replica productions, even if all the replica sets had used the licence plate convention, which they haven't...

    • The blog post sounds good - I'll do that so I can gather more info before starting anything.

      That sounds good to me. I'll try and scrounge up as many pics I can of of the sets of each production to get the whole process going. The basic layout will be the same, of course; the main changes between earlier and later sets AFAIK was the enlargening of the 'pipe' as well as changing the location (and color) of the number plate, although I'll need to check that.

      I'm actually not too sure about the Palladium one versus the B'way one - I guess the only way to be sure would be to cross examine pictures. And yes, the NAP70 tidbit is in the original article :)

  • Do you design costumes for Cats productions?

  • How do you get the cast lists so nicely aligned and neat?  I won't let me copy any as a template.

    • It won't?  How rude!  I'm going in to Source Editor and copying and pasting the header code...  mostly they're 500px wide but I've been using 660px for the three columns, with the translated names.  I use the Source Editor all the time, but I've found it might crash if you switch between source editor and normal view too many times, so it's worth saving frequently!

  • Hi! I suppose only an admin can do it, so could you please add the missing z in Stoyan Zmarzlik's picture's name? (I noticed there was a problem when I typed "Stoyan Zmarzlik.jpg" in the infobox field and the picture didn't appear as had those of the other actors whose pages I edited before.)

  • Hey Belle! I'm so sorry, but I just accidentally uploaded a file and didn't change the name... from DISGUSTING MAN.jpg (It's an inside joke so I saved it to my computer as that, but planned to change it.) 

    I'm so sorry

  • hello! i see you're the admin here. have been enjoying this wiki quite a lot but noticing it is a little messy formatting and readability wise. also noticed the forums do not seem to be functional.

    i am wondering if tweaking the character boxes & page formats is in the question. i think there is a lot we could do to make information more streamlined, objective and accessible here, particularly in the song pages (as is, lyrics take up a lot of room and blurbs are sometimes subjective).

    also thinking that using design sketches on character pages may be preferable than pictures of actors from various productions. alternatively, we could use tabs to toggle between original london cast actor, original broadway cast actor and movie cast actors. 

    thanks for your time. hope i can contribute to the wiki & hopefully make some helpful changes

    • Hey!  I see you've posted a few times - Welcome, Beckward is the founder, I'm one of the admins.  The whole place is still very much a work in progress, there's a lot to do yet!

  • I went to the  Wanted pages and I was gonna create some pages about the cast that don't exist here yet, but when I clicked "add a page" it said something went wrong error code 404, idk what to do about this but if I cannot create a page, I can just wait for people to create it  and add the needed information. 

      Loading editor
    • hmmm...  curious!  404 might mean a problem with your internet connection?  Were you using the drop-down menu in the top right, or clicking on a red link?  I just made a new page through the red link easily enough...  if it doesn't work, then yeah, post a request list!

    • I've tried both way and none works for me, btw I've been preparing some information of Michael Gruber, can you create a page of him so I can edit and provide his details?

        Loading editor
    • Sure :D  I'm adding a few pics to Munkustrap's page right now, so I'll redlink his name, then make the page for you!

    • nvm, I've created it on my ipad already, I'm working on it now :D thanks

  • Hi. (Forgot to log in, sorry.) I was wondering-should we create pages for the West End 2014 cast?

      Loading editor
    • In my opinion, it's worth creating pages for those who've been in multiple productions, and have a history with the show, so like Ross Finnie or Dane Quixall  -  so we can create the spider-web of links between different cast lists.  Otherwise tho, I'm inclined to say we just link them to the official site which has their biographies?  We've got pages already for all the original London and Broadway casts, and it's hard to find material for some of those pages because the actor in question hasn't gone on to do much else relevant...

  • Hi there,

    I'm new here, not really sure what to start haha but thought I'd ask, do you know of any *good* cats instrumental soundtracks at all? Ideally I'd love one like the 1998 DVD orchestra style but fat chance I think :( The ones on youtube are really bad...especially 'Memory', I just thought I'd take a shot and ask :) x thanks!

    • They do exist - I think they might be part of the package for amateur/schools productions to rehearse to?  But where you might find a copy personally, I'm afraid I don't know!

    • It's nearly impossible to find an instrumental package of the whole show. I've been trying to get one for the last 4 or 5 years and I've never had any success. RUG created tracks for school productions but also these aren't available for other people.

      There are also tracks that were recorded by the band of the UK tour. Someone who owned them promised me to send them to me, but unfortunately he never did.
