    ""Bernadette would SLAY "If he Walked Into My Life"!!!"

    I think she might have slain it 15 years ago at the latest; at 68, her voice is, I believe, no longer sufficiently strong or flexible to sing and act this role even 6 times a week."


    I don't know the score but just listening to that particular song, Bernadette could pull it off. My worry is it so obviously plays to her strengths that I know exactly how she would sing ev

    Give it up qolbinau, there is no way Bernadette would even consider doing this. (A) It's a small, intimate Off-Broadway rendering that will cater to an audience of less than 100 people. (B) The producers couldn't afford her services. (C) This will be a mostly British cast.

  • Bernadette Peters agenda  Aug 23 2016, 06:52:28 PM

    If Staunton has the voice, Bernadette has the voice. I'm so sad that this might be yet another opportunity for her to slip by (even if not the best suited). If she really wanted to play it though for little $$$, I think it would happen now. The producers would be stupid not to want her if they could because with a theatre that small the entire run would sell out at Broadway prices. But it's very possible she doesn't care about it as much as I do haha.

    did you not notice all that hullabaloo that occurred when he was leaving the show? resale tickets sold for thousands of dollars. the guy is a star.

    Yes...is Riedel trying to pick up? You become Hugh Jackman-fame because of movie roles, not theatre fame.

  • Riedel on Groundhog Day coming to Broadway  Aug 18 2016, 10:28:00 PM

    Riedel genuinely seems to have inside sources and so my feeling (without thinking about what evidence I have to support that) is that his predictions of whether shows will happen or not etc. are often accurate - like the general movements on Broadway. But Riedel's judgements of shows are definitely not always accurate. In order words, I would guess it's likely true they are eying broadway.

    However, he will (and should never) live down his ridiculous praise for Bullets and predi

    I think my follow up response was somewhat rude and probably uncalled for, but the initial one wasn't that rude and still remains mostly true. 

    However, to acknowledge my error and if it makes you feel better perhaps I can record myself singing the Judge's Johanna (Mea Culpa) and see if it worthy to make any of the lists in this thread :P.

  • Wicked's First Non Professional Production In Sydney  Aug 13 2016, 12:11:15 AM

    So saw this show last night. I was a little shocked because it was surprisingly very well polished - I was expecting amateur hour and it was anything but. I've since discovered that perhaps semi-professional is a better term to describe the production rather than non-professional because they are paid actors and they have clearly poured a lot of money into the production!

    Overall, it felt like a 'lite'/'scaled' version of the original production. Very similar di
