The idea behind this page is to increase understanding of the musical. It's not withen the scope of this document to debate whether or not Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer are brother and sister or mates. Instead, This page was concieved to answer questions like, "Why did the video cut Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer's song short?" Mostly about the video.
Simply put, alot of questions I hear that I know the answers to, I'm going to answer here, and any question I have that I don't know the answer to, I'm going to ask and hope that someone can answer it for me. If you have any questions, email me! I'll put them up too, and maybe someone will see it and email me the answer...

Who's Exotica, anyway? Where'd she come from?

Femi Taylor, who played exotica in the video, was the original Tantomile of the London cast. Appearently, they just didn't think it was right to film the video without her, and created Exotica for her.

Why didn't the video include Growltiger's Last Stand?

Sir John Mills couldn't handle the scean, due to failing health. Also, Andrew Lloyd Webber wanted to keep the movie under two hours long, and felt that this part wasn't as interesting as some others.

Was Veerle Castelyn dubbed?

Yes, with her own voice. She was recorded before going on vacation back to her home in Belguim, because it was feared that her accent upon returning would be too strong.
