I want to mention that I went and watched Betty sing With One Look on one of the you tube vids. I heard the vibrato and I realized that I heard it all along, but didn't think anything of it. I like it - it lets me hear her vocal chords at work. Without it, when the notes are just plain, they aren't as interesting to me.
btw - has anyone tried to go back to the theater at an off hour to purchase some merch?
I agree about Glenn Close inhabiting the role. She is the one reason I loved the show so much. Her grace and stage presence were extraordinary. If only she had the voice of Betty! Oh well, you can't have everything!
I watched a few Betty vids on you tube, from Sunset Blvd. Corny as this sounds, when I hear her sing powerful songs like With One Look and yes, Memories, I'm so glad I am alive and able to hear such a gift as hers.
