This could be brilliant casting. She has that mix of strength and vulnerability that Natasha Richardson brought to the role and remains one of the best performances I've ever seen. I'd love to see it happen.

OMG OMG OMG

Get Mary Beth Piel as Fräulein Schneider and I would just drop dead from happiness.

I said the same thing when I found out Jen was up for it!!! Though, if they still have the same Frau Schneider from a few weeks ago, I'll be happy with that as well.

I actually think this is ideal casting. IDEAL.

Is it bad that I still kind of want to see Liza as Schneider?

Oh goodness, I thought of the one from Destiny's Child, and I was so unhappy.

~ it's jill HA-WORTH *not* jill HAY-WORTH...

~ she was the ORIGINAL sally bowles in the 1966 OBC of cabaret

~ get acquainted with the original and then get back to me so you could know that whoever plays sally bowles does NOT have to be the belter liza was in the film...

A Sally who's a mediocre singer? I don't know if I could deal. Though of course I do think she's a pretty good actress.

It works better for the character for Sally to be pretty mediocre of a singer

LOL the 90's are a blur to me. Lots of meth, and I was too poor to ever come to NYC.

~ i think he/she'd go into shock to find out dame judi dench originated the roe in the original london production back in 1968.

~ dame judi dench isn't excalty known for her vocal prowess.
