My first post was in 2011 and I believe it had something to do with Newsies.
Countdown till Jordan comments some hilariously stupid remark about me having multiple socks and then going on a hissy fit on why I may or may not see his posts....LOL #JordansoFunny #JayAndJordanForever
Not sure if that really was said. It was a nasty time around here, but not sure how one could make that assertion without having seen every Anita on Broadway
It was definitely said. I doubt that statement was shared by everyone of her naysyers but it was definitely said. It was something along the lines of " She may have won the tony but she is the worst Anita to be on Broadway"
I believe what was said by some when it opened was that, Anita should be played by a triple threat and Karen apparently was not that. Many disliked that during the "dance at the gym" Riff's girlfriend was dancing circles around Karen. I believe some others said Karen was the worst Anita to ever play Broadway.
Thanks for the link. If hundreds of high school girls can sing "Home", I don't see why a professional like Emma cannot. I assume she has a voice instructor for this part to whip her voice into shape...
I really can't (and don't want to) believe that Emma Watson is the reason we won't be hearing the beautiful Broadway songs. It's not like "Home" is of "Rainbow High" caliber. If she can't sing Home, No Matter what and A change in me, the we might as well just replace all her songs with Twinkly twinkle little star and other nursery rhymes.
But like I said, I'm in denial Watson's singing ability is the reason for this.
That being said, it is my main goal to work at Lincoln Center in a golden age musical or in a more classical show like Light In The Piazza or on Broadway in a revival of a Golden Age show. So I have no intention of not doing legit repertoire because the reality is my voice is much more suited to legit singing.
It's hard to make a living just off of Lincoln center shows. I mean we get it, you love Kelli O'hara and you want to be Ke
