Post London's Janet!!!
Not much buzz about London's Drowsy...

Summer Strallen plays Janet in this production and I wonder if any of those who'd seen it think Strallen is at par with Sutton Foster.

Saw the show last night and had a great time.

Summer Strallen as Janet is wonderful but as I expected, Sutton Foster has a better singing voice if to be compared. This is not to say that Strallen's performance is not good. Her voice is just so different and it's quite an unusual departure for those who are so used to hearing Foster from the cast recording.

I also enjoyed Elaine Paige's performance. She was funny and her comedic timing couldn't be more perfect.

I'm so happy to see Bob Martin originating the role in the West End staging as I can't imagine anyone else playing the Man In Chair role.

She's very, very bendy.

What are the vocal differences between Sutton and her?

I love Sutton's voice in Thouroghly (sp?) Modern Mille, but to be honest, I saw Summer live, and from Sutton on the Cd...I thought Summer was better, but I'm sure that Sutton did a great job too.

Elaine was great...i loved her. That whole cast was great, it's a shame they canceled the soundtrack to it.

8O Please don't get Salome started on her I-Hate-Elaine Paige rant. It's almost as bad as her Cheno-The-Evil-Republican rant or her I-Hate-Wicked rant. You really don't want to go there. :-#

Elaine is only famous because she ---- tim rice.

every role she played someone else played better. her actiong is bad and her singing voice is nasal and screechy.
