Admetus

Pictures

Admetus is one of Cats' most complicated characters, not because of his role in the story, but because he creates some confusion with Plato's character. In London performances and in other shows in the world, only Admetus' character does exist, and he is sometimes the Jellicle Cat who dances the Mating Dance with Victoria, during the Jellicle Ball. In other performances, this character doesn't appear at all. In Broadway performances (but not only), the same character is named Plato, but he supports the same role. Finally, in Cats Video, the character was "divided" in two, so we have both Plato and Admetus: the first one dances the Mating scene with Victoria; the second one has not important roles and he seems one of the most young Jellicles, but not being a kitty anymore. He can be well seen on the background during the songs of Gus and Macavity, but the scene where he appears most clearly is when he dances with Cassandra, during the first part of the Jellicle Ball.
A final note: it's hard to understand if, in the Cats Video, the dancer who performs Admetus, Frank Thompson, is the same who performs the Rumpus Cat. The credits at the end of the Video say so, but the credits published online, on the Really Useful Group web-site, say instead that is Bryn Walters to wear the costume of the "super-cat", so it would be the same performer who plays Macavity and (what a surprise!) Plato. Another confusion event between the two characters?
