Manchester Opera House, April 2013
This was the stage door where I finally started to accept that - despite my attachment to the 2006 tour - this new cast of Cats had started to suck me in. Joel Morris' Carbucketty and Dawn Williams' Jemima were still my favourites, but other new faces were also starting to win me over. And, of course, we can't forget that Manchester was my first chance to meet the amazing super swing who had come on mid-show back in Wolverhampton, and that super swing was none other than Matthew Caputo! This stage door really was just the beginning!
