Great Salt Lake Mime Troupe Outline and Scrapbook

Stuart Curtis in the Orchestra for "Cats" -- Hamburg, Germany 1986 to 2001



Stuart Curtis writes: ... It was a big deal. A German businessman who did a lot of business with England had the idea to bring musicals to Germany. He started by putting CATS into a theater on the Reeperbahn. A relatively large and successful musical scene in Germany ensued. Starlight Express, started in Bochum by the same production company in the late 80s is still running to this day.
