Norbert Leo Butz - "Defying Gravity"

I think this is a pretty fine rendition, maybe my favorite male version. He does have some lyric flubs, but it's altogether a nice effort.

I happened to see this show at The Abbey last week. He was really great. He sang songs from all the shows he's done, including Wicked. He started by singing Dancing Thru Life, then stopped about halfway through. He said, "**** it, I've always hated this song. Let's just do the one everyone wants to hear anyway." That's when he went into DG.

The show was great fun- his banter between songs was amusing, and of course the singing was great.

Fantastic I really want to see him in another musical. He seems to get all the bad musicals for some reason better than half the talent on Broadway

You f*cked up, you bought a piece of overpriced garbage!

Norbert is amazing. I hope he finds long term success with a musical in the future.

I wanna see him return in something that utilizes all his talent. He is a great comic actor, but he can make you cry in a heartbeat. He can dance pretty damn well, and his voice is amazing.
Also, anyone else think he would have made a wonderful Baker in "Into the Woods"?
