今年霉霉與奧斯卡的距離,或許就只差這部全球頂級吸貓大片了……
來源:音樂劇《貓》官網、EW.com、Hollywoodlife. com    日期: 2019-07-09

鐵桿霉粉都知道,霉霉是個資深的貓奴,家里還養了三只超級萌的喵星人:Meredit、Olivia還有Benjamin Button。

 

這三只貓咪不光在家中享受著貓主子的待遇,也常常在霉霉的各種MV和歌詞中出現,可以說是真·貓生贏家了~

 

It’s not exactly a secret that Taylor Swift loves cats. She’s got three of her own — Meredith, Olivia, and the newest family member, Benjamin Button — and her four-legged friends have made cameos in everything from her music videos to her lyrics.

 

而今年霉霉還將自己對貓咪的愛提升到了一個新境界 —— 演貓!更準確地說,是飾演“披著人皮的貓”(笑)~

 

神劇要配“神仙陣容”

 

沒錯,霉霉參演的就是由這部經典音樂劇《貓》改編而成的電影。

 

在片中,霉霉飾演美麗“紅母貓”邦貝魯琳娜 (Bombalurina)。邦貝魯琳娜是劇中主要的女性角色之一,母貓的首領,在唱段《神秘的貓麥卡維提》中有一段著名的獨唱。

 

Now she’ll be taking her feline fanaticism to a new level, starring as — you guessed it — a cat in Tom Hooper’s upcoming Cats film.

 

Swift has signed on as Bombalurina, a female cat who appears throughout the musical. (Her biggest number is the jazzy “Macavity,” and ode to Elba’s mysterious villain.)

 

霉霉先前在受訪時,也曾表達過自己對原版音樂劇的喜愛:

Obviously, I loved the show, I loved the music, and one of the things that made Cats so special when it came out in the ’80s was that it was presented in a way people hadn’t seen before.

 

很顯然,我愛這部劇,我愛里面的音樂,上世紀80年代《貓》上演的時候,其一大特別之處就在于那樣的演繹方式人們先前從來沒有見過。

 

除了霉霉之外,電影版的其他卡司也是相當豪華,堪稱“神仙陣容”:

 

該片由奧斯卡獲獎導演湯姆·霍伯執導,他曾導演過《國王的演講》(The King's Speech) 、《悲慘世界》(Les Misérables),《丹麥女孩》(The Danish Girl) 等經典作品,“靈魂歌后”詹妮弗·哈德森飾演“魅力貓”,奧斯卡影后朱迪·單奇出演“領袖貓”、“萬磁王”伊恩·麥克萊恩飾演“劇院貓”,脫口秀主持人“詹胖”詹姆斯·柯登飾演“富貴貓”等等……

 

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Broadway musical is getting the big-screen treatment, and the star-studded cast includes Jennifer Hudson as Grizabella, Judi Dench as Old Deuteronomy, Ian McKellen as Gus the Theater Cat, James Corden as Bustopher Jones, Idris Elba as Macavity, Rebel Wilson as Jennyanydots, and Jason Derulo as the Rum Tum Tugger.

 

 

如此強大的陣容,也難怪有外媒報道表示,霉霉想要憑借這部電影沖擊自己的第一座奧斯卡啦~

“霉霉希望憑借《貓》中的角色贏得奧斯卡:能夠沖擊大獎她感到相當幸運”

 

畢竟,這部由大神“爵爺”安德魯·勞埃德·韋伯打造的原版音樂劇已在圈內封神,相信哪怕是不熟悉音樂劇的人都或多或少有所耳聞。而它所創下的光輝歷史更是難以超越……

 

《貓》是倫敦西區和百老匯駐演時間最長的音樂劇之一。 自1981年在英國新倫敦劇院首演以來,它便不斷創造歷史,在倫敦西區上演21年,近9000場。在百老匯上演也有18年,兩個版本還都曾獲得格萊美獎。

 

其中,1983年的百老匯版更是獲獎無數,拿下了包括“最佳音樂劇”在內的7座托尼獎。

 

如今,《貓》已在30多個國家上演,被譯成15種語言版本,觀眾人數超過了7300萬。總之,不管男女老少,世界各地許多人都就此入了這個“吸貓大坑”~

 

CATS, one of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history, received its world premiere at the New London Theatre in 1981 where it played for 21 record-breaking years and almost 9,000 performances. The ground-breaking production was the winner of the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Musical. In 1983 the Broadway production became the recipient of seven Tony awards including Best Musical, and ran for 18 years. Both the original London and Broadway cast recordings won Grammy Awards for Best Cast Album.

 

Since its world premiere, CATS has been presented in over 30 countries, has been translated into 15 languages and has been seen by more than 73 million people worldwide. 

 

總有一只杰里科喵萌到你

 

那么,這部“貓咪”神劇具體講述了一個什么樣的故事呢?簡單說來,這就是一部充滿各式各樣萌貓的劇~

 

《貓》的故事來源于美國作家T·S·艾略特所著的詩集《老負鼠講講世上的貓》(Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats),后被“爵爺”改編成了音樂劇,搬上了世界舞臺。

 

原本詩集是艾略特專門寫給他教子的,所以原著故事也都充滿童趣,講述了一只只奇特貓咪的冒險故事。

 

Cats (1981) is a work by one of the most successful musical composers, Briton Andrew Lloyd Webber. He set to music to a book of children’s poems by Anglo-American author TS Eliot called Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. The poems were written by Eliot as an entertainment for his godchildren. They are all about the adventures of oddly named cats, such as “Macavity: the Mystery Cat” and “Skimbleshanks: the Railway Cat”.

 

在音樂劇《貓》中,貓咪們都來自杰里科貓家族。在某一個特別的夜晚,杰里科貓家族會舉行一年一度的舞會,選出誰將前往九重天獲得重生。觀眾們會在劇中看到形形色色的杰里科貓,每一只貓都有自己專屬的歌曲和舞蹈。

 

在杰里科貓家族中,有一只重生多次的“領袖貓”老杜特羅內米,每年都會由德高望重的他來決定哪只貓將前往九重天獲得重生。

 

In Cats the animals make up a tribe known as the Jellicles. Over the evening in the theater, the cats will find out which among them will go to the Heaviside Layer, where the chosen cat will get a second life. The audience is introduced to the various cats that make up the Jellicles tribe. Each cat, or cat group, has a song and a dance to go with it.

 

The cats have a leader, an elder named Old Deuteronomy. He is respected because he has lived many lives and has had nine or perhaps more wives. It is Deuteronomy that will decide who, this year, will ascend to the Heaviside Layer.

 

在貓咪們爭取重生機會的過程中,發生了許多事。比如“神秘貓”麥卡維提給杰里科貓家族帶來了不少麻煩,甚至在逃跑的時候弄滅了所有的燈,將所有的貓和現場觀眾都置于了一片黑暗之中。

 

最后,杰里科貓們只得找來“魔術貓”密斯托弗里先生,修好電燈。

 

The musical is full of incident, but the most entertaining part of the show is probably the scene in the second act involving Macavity. Macavity is a troublemaker, and the other cats find it difficult to deal with him. To escape the other cats Macavity turns out the theater lights, leaving both cats and audience in the dark. They have to call in a cat called Mr Mistoffelees, a magician, to restore the lighting.

 

而《貓》中的高潮部分則是“領袖貓”決定哪一只杰里科貓獲得重生的時刻。就在這時,“魅力貓”格利澤貝拉唱起了全劇那首最經典的歌曲《回憶》(Memory)。

 

她年輕時曾是貓族中最美麗的貓,卻厭倦了貓族的生活到外面闖蕩,但嘗盡了世態炎涼,再回來時已丑陋無比。貓族并不愿意接納她,然而,一曲感人至深的《回憶》平息了所有貓咪對她的敵意,最終“領袖貓”選擇了她。

 

But which cat is allowed to go the Heaviside Layer and gain another life? It turns out to be a cat who is shunned by the others but is nevertheless an audience favorite: Grizabella cat. She is old and grey and doesn’t look as if she has much life left in her. It is Grizabella who sings the most famous song from the musical, Memory, a sad song about an aged cat who now has nothing but her memories.

 

專訪首位華裔“魅力貓”

 

在今年的6月7日至10月13日期間,世界經典原版音樂劇《貓》將在中國10座城市展開巡演。而在這次官宣的卡司陣容中,“魅力貓”的選角令人格外期待~

 

她就是荷蘭籍華裔音樂劇演員徐麗東,也是在音樂劇《貓》中首位飾演“魅力貓”的華裔面孔。

 

徐麗東可以說是世界音樂劇舞臺上最亮眼的華裔演員之一,擁有豐富的海外音樂劇演出經歷,她是百老匯制作的荷蘭與瑞典版《西貢小姐》的主角Kim,也是荷蘭版的《吉屋出租》Mimi、瑞典版《長靴皇后》的Nicola,也曾出演過英國國家劇院的作品《這里有愛》。

 

2017年中文版《變身怪醫》與鄭云龍、劉令飛的搭檔巡演,讓更多的國內觀眾見識到了她作為一名專業音樂劇人的素養。

 

Li-Tong Hsu was the first and only Chinese musical theatre performer to play the role of Kim in productions of Miss Saigon in Europe in multiple languages. She has also played the roles of Gigi and Ellen. Her other credits include Mimi in Rent (Amsterdam), Virilla in The Frogs (London), Nicola in Kinky Boots (Sweden) and Aurora Aquino in Here Lies Love (National Theatre London).

 

She has also gained success in the Chinese musical industry, playing Lucy in Jekyll & Hyde, followed by lead roles in the original Chinese productions of Rock of Ages and Murder Ballad. 

 

7月2日-7月14日,徐麗東跟隨《貓》劇組來到北京進行巡演,世紀君也借此機會與徐麗東小姐姐見了面,和她用英文聊了聊“魅力貓”這個角色~

 

在采訪過程中,世紀君也和麗東小姐姐聊到了她的成長經歷。從小,麗東小姐姐就很喜歡音樂,小時候就愛對著鏡子唱歌。而在學校出演音樂劇的經歷更是讓她萌生了對于音樂劇的熱愛,從而走上了音樂劇演員之路。

 

由于教育背景以及在多國的工作經歷,麗東小姐姐據稱能用6種語言演唱音樂劇(英語、法語、德語、荷蘭語、瑞典語、普通話),在采訪中,小姐姐也分享了自己學習語言的秘訣~

 
 
 
 

When I was young, I started to learn English, I just watched a lot of movies. In Holland, when they show TV series on TV, it’s mostly in the original language. They don’t get Dutch. And I think that’s also why many Dutch people speak English very well, because they keep listening it. So to learn a new language, I think it’s just about listening and copying.

 

我小的時候就開始學英語了,看了很多電影。在荷蘭,電視里播放的電視劇都是原版的,沒有荷蘭語的配音。我認為這也是許多荷蘭人英語說得不錯的原因,因為大家都在不斷地聽這門語言。所以我認為要學習一門新語言,關鍵在于聽和模仿。

 
 
 

 

最后,麗東小姐姐也為世紀君的粉絲們準備了小禮物喲,是5張她親筆簽名的音樂劇《貓》官方海報~請大家在評論中寫下對音樂劇《貓》的期待/觀后感,或者為麗東小姐姐打call,就有可能get本次福利喲~

 

為公平公正起見,本君將在本次活動結束后,在上墻評論中隨機抽取5名原創留言的幸運用戶,送出麗東小姐姐親筆簽名的海報。精選評論上限為100條,還請大家盡快留言,先到先上墻啦~

 

獲獎名單和抽取過程稍后也會進行公示,活動結束后在公眾號后臺發送關鍵詞“貓海報抽獎”就能看到啦~世紀君擁有本次活動的最終解釋權。
