3/16/08 works, except when I switch to full screen when the sound continues and the picture disappears. Any ideas??

Thank you for the link Gregor. It saved me the trouble of searching the internet to find it.

I watched this yesterday evening and was unimpressed overall. Many of the performances left a lot to be desired, even Kelli O'Hara and Audra McDonald who I normally love. In Kelli's case, I thought she seemed to be struggling vocally, while Audra just over-egged everything that she sang. I also think they should have swapped parts in the "At the Ballet" sequence.

I do not understand the global success Josh Groban has. He was constantly flat throughout and his performances just seemed very ordinary.

In Maria Friedman's case, the voice is shot! I have never been a fan, but it was painful to listen to at times. Why she was given two songs to perform, while other, more able performers were given just one, I will never know!

The other performances weren't anything special either, with the exception of Brian d'Arcy James who, for me, stole the show with "At the Fountain" from "Sweet Smell of Success" which I had never heard before, but which is a GREAT song!

I saw this too. Hearing the character of "Diana Morales" in "A Chorus Line" sung by Maria Feldman was a bit jarring. The producers should have had the original, Priscilla Lopez, sing that particular song. Just saying...from RC in Austin, Texas USA
"Noel [Coward] and I were in Paris once. Adjoining rooms, of course. One night, I felt mischievous, so I knocked on Noel's door, and he asked, 'Who is it?' I lowered my voice and said 'Hotel detective. Have you got a gentleman in your room?' He answered, 'Just a minute, I'll ask him.'" (Beatrice Lillie)
