Our Lily was just terrible - really weak and much softer than rooster and miss hannigan. And she thought she was wonderful! EEEK.

We were double cast, and both our Lilys were awful. Such a shame. We had such strong Roosters and Hannigans, too.

I don't hate her with a passion but I definetly think Kristin Chenoweth was a better Lily by a mile.


I Agree. Kristin Chenoweth was way better than her.


Peters is a comedic and vocal genius

Cheo is an annoying little hack.

Well, the character of Lily is an annoying little hack IMO.

So, perfect casting!

Two of my friends played Hannigan and Lily in a local production of Annie Jr. I didn't end up getting to see them ( :( :( :( ) but I heard they were amazing. (Doesn't surprise me. They're always amazing! They're so much fun to act with.) They were EXTREMELY over the top, and Hannigan would literally spit in Lily's face. You can tell just by the pictures that they were BY FAR the best part of the show. (I really hope I can borrow one of their DVD's of the show soon and be proven right!)

Lily is definitely an awesome role. Must be played over the top crazy. I love her!

And for the record, I liked Bernadatte's better than Kristin's.

Bernadette was the first Lily I saw and my favorite. Kristin is okay in the role but not too impressing.

One Lily isn't better than the other really, it's just the type of Lily you prefer.
Bernadette played Lily more to the greedy type of role, and less with the airhead, and Kristen played Lily to more of the airhead role and less with the greedy. Keep in mind, that the two versions are completely different.

major bump!

Personally I thought that Chenoweth's Lily was terrible. I much prefered Bernadette Peters' version.

I agree that Lily is a completely all-or-nothing part. Between her and Hannigan a show can be completely transformed.
