Oh my goodness, this woman has an amazing voice! She tells Seth a story about how she had to cover for Julie Andrews (mid-show) in "Victor/Victoria." At the very end, she holds an INcredible note. Would someone please describe it...it is UNreal!! (from Playbill.com)

She has been missing from Broadway. Saw her in V/V when Julie was out and she was superb.

Anne is incredibly talented and a wonderful person!

I saw a video of her singing a song from the Cyrano musical on youtube a while ago. I can't remember the title of it, and I haven't been able to find it on there since. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

She is delightful!! How could they say no one heard Carlotta's last note in Prima Donna?! I used to work at Phantom when it first opened, and I used to watch that scene/song every time I was there. I was very well aware of that final note. I also remember her from Cyrano when she went by Anne Marie Runolfsson.

The last note she hits is a high F, one octave higher than her "belted" F (when Seth says "vocal damage" in jest) - it's not really belted - she has an incredibly healthy mix, which to the untrained ear is "a belt." The high F she does in good humor at the end is nothing difficult for a classically trained coloratura soprano, which she clearly is. She has an amazing 4 octave vocal range. Brava, indeed!

Believe that was the Dutch version of Cyrano that briefly played on Broadway years ago.

She's very, very talented and a sweet lady. I have met her informally over the years and she's really nice. (I did see her as Carlotta-she was magnificent.)
