Their voices are so similar to me it is freaky. whenever tick tick boom comes on broadway world radio, I have to look to double check.

Sorry, I respectfully beg to differ.

Oh please do!! It may just be me. But i was amazed at i guess to me how similar they were since i guess i pictured raul's voice to be completly another way???

Oooh. Me too. I think their voices are quite distinct. And unlike Raul, I doubt we'll ever see Adam Pascal in "Sunday In The Park With George".

I think their voices are very distinct. Raul has a very strong vibrato.

I think there voices are very distinct as well, yet I can see why you would find them similar. When I first got the TTB recording, it was my first real taste of Raul (I had RHS, but come on now, can't really judge his voice based on that) and I thought he sounded like an interesting mix of Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp. It was probably my OBC-Rent obsessed mind at the time, as that thought has definitely dwindled and I don't think I'd ever mistake one for the other, but I can still see why people may think that way. I've heard a few others make a similar statement to yours.

Very true, but I never thought I would see him as the Emcee -- and he was quite good! Stranger things have happened re: re: re: re: re: re: raul and Adam Pascal...

Becky, I agree!
Didn't Adam Pascal read him say something like (big paraphrasing...) he would never be caught dead in a "traditional" broadway show? I nearly fell over when I saw the poster with him in nipple paint.

Well, CABARET is hardly traditional. I think he meant more of a OKLAHOMA or CAROUSEL type of show.

I'm not sure I'd classify Cabaret as "traditional". Classic, yes, traditional... not so much.

Though I too have heard that he was hesitant at one point not long ago to be in roles that have already been established. I guess the emcee doesn't count, since there's so much ad libbing and creation that can still be done with it.

LOL! I think that was also in the early days following RENT. I remember him saying (when he was doing AIDA) that he had really come to love musical theater and his love for the stage had taken off. It would have surprised me 3 years ago had he gone into Cabaret -- but this year? Only a minor shock re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: raul and Adam Pascal...

I think that comment was back in the days of Rent, but there was a more recent article that said the same thing. Glad he did Cabaret though... very glad. It's not REALLY traditional.

"I nearly fell over when I saw the poster with him in nipple paint."
So did I. Wasn't breathing when I saw it in person.

I haven't seen Raul live yet (soon though). From what I've heard of Raul on Tick Tick Boom they're not that similar, other than that they're well-suited for rock music. Adam's is much more distinct. I heard the same thing about Norbert Leo Butz (that he sounded like Adam). Haven't seen him live either, but on the Wicked cd, not so much. Comments on that?

lol, thanks. I love my icon too. Is it bad that a larger version of that hangs in about 8 separate locations in my room?
Probably.

I am a HUGE fan of Raul and i like adam. I find that when Raul sings straight tone in TTB he can sometimes sound like adam. But as a whole 99.99% of the time i think they don't sound alike at all. Especially when Raul does use an effect (i.e. straight tone) on his voice.

ok 30/90 is on and i know exactly what it is. Adam pascal voice was a distinct voice one that I had not heard on broadway really before rent, he does have similarities. TOTALLY does. I can not pin point what, but they do..haha
