Annie was the other role she was awful in. she can't be touched in Sondheim roles though.

Angela Lansbury is good. But NOT the best!

Have you seen any of the clips of her performing...or even heard the recording with her?

actionjaxson is blinded by his misguided worship of Patti.

I was lucky enough to see a ton of Roses live. The list of my favorites are...

1. Lansbury. I give her this credit because she was the first woman to give the character life. Merman was a terrible actress and never really understood this complicated character.

2. Tyne Daly. I saw her in this show. The recording does her no justice as she was deathly ill while recording it. She was amazing!!

3. Peters. She played the most true to form Rose (or so they say). The real Rose was more like Peters than any of the other previous ones. I have said this before and I will say it again. Bernadettes health problems early on in the run really hurt her chances of ever making her Rose a legend. It's a shame because she was really wonderful.

Amen.

I liked Bernadette A LOT.

I also like LuPone and Lansbury and Merman.

Midler was my overall favorite.
Merman was probably next best.
Lansbury was good (not as good as Midler or Merman, but good), but brought down by a weak supporting cast (particularly Zan Charisse as Louise)
Bernadette Peters and Roz Russell were horrendously miscast (in my opinion)
I haven't seen enough of Patti LuPone or Tyne Daly to pass judgment on them, and I haven't seen or heard Betty Buckley or anyone else do the role.
