Quote for the Day
English mountaineer who took part in the first three British expeditions to Mount Everest in the early 1920s, George Leigh Mallory wrote, “The highest of the world's mountains, it seems, has to make but a single gesture of magnificence to be the lord of all, vast in unchallenged and isolated supremacy.”

So, if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won’t see why we go. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life. That is what life means and what life is for.
- George Mallory  (1886-1924) before he died on Mount Everest in June 1924

Yesterday, I noticed that Daniel Gaymon didn’t actually play Plato for the whole run of the Broadway revival, as I’d assumed: he left at the start of October, and the last two months were played Marc Heitzman - whom I’d never heard of! Unfortunately there were no photos of him on the Cats wiki, so of course I had to go and hunt some down to add to his page.
This was an excellent thing to do because now I have these photos and they made my day brighter. You’re welcome.
(As it happens, the second one - with the kitten - was on the wiki already, but the actor wasn’t named. Poor Marc. Now he has a face on the wiki!)
In the last photo, Pouncival/George is Evan Kasprzak, who started at the same time as Marc, and Electra is Mallory Michaellann, who joined at the end of October.

Duncan Grant’s well known photograph of George Mallory, the mountaineer. Although George was married with three children, it is rumored that at one point Grant and he were lovers.
George was last seen in 1924, through binoculars. approaching the summit of Everest with Sandy Irvine. The were never seen again, until George’s well preserved body was found in 1999. Irvine’s body has never been found.

For the stone from the top for geologists, the knowledge of the limits of endurance for the doctors, but above all for the spirit of adventure to keep alive the soul of man. - George Leigh Mallory
