Miranda3 - I love how you picked up on those small touches that George brought to the role, especially in 'There You Are'. Couldn't agree with you more! There was a larger than life exuberance and knowingness that Rose brought to the role (and that opening number) that Norton sorrily lacks. Norton is a wonderful Chairman to be sure, but he could afford to have a lot more size in his performance. I also think the new arrangement of There You Are is doing him no favors -- Rupert really toned down the rollicking bounce of the percussion. I uploaded an excerpt from the OBC press reel below -- which really highlights the difference in approaches, both in terms of the orchestration and Rose's inimitable performance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEj1dn1Mrco Enjoy!
