For pure golden tones in the voice, every time I hear Linda Eder I feel a tingle in my spine - and, although her acting is nothing more than adequate, I loved her in J & H and joined in the standing ovation which literally stopped the show when she sang "A New Life".

But for all round total star quality - comic timing, vocal brilliance that combines electrifying power with heartbreaking pathos, dramatic subtlety and immense stage presence, the Queen of modern musical theater is undoubtedly BERNADETTE PETERS.

I can't remember her name right now but she's done a lot of good shows, like one was called "Something Something" with whats-his-name and another one was called just plain "Something." She rocks!

I really love Carolee Carmello. Her voice is stellar. Also, I love Julia Murney, Idina and Kristin, Kerry Butler, and let me not forget the AMAZING Sherie Rene Scott. I don't know about the rest of ya, but I am DEFINITELY due for a new recording with her on it. But she's pregnant, so that's ok. Good luck with the baby, Sherie and Kurt.

Donna Murphy wins for best all-around versatility. Then I'd have to go with Audra McDonald, Betty Buckley and Patti LuPone.

I'll have to agree with Carolee. She's incredible in Urinetown. Bernadette, yes, and Idina singing-wise, but not acting-wise. Can Madeline Kahn also be considered a Broadway lady?

Madeline Kahn can defintely be considered in this category. She's an all-around legend if you ask me. Great in televison, movies, and theatre! And certainly taken from us too soon. re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: Who's your favorite BROADWAY LADY? I think she would have been a good Mama Rose. re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: Who's your favorite BROADWAY LADY?

I would have loved to see her play Rose. I know she had the classical voice, but it would have been amazing to hear her really belt some of those songs.
