The clip I posted is all the proof anyone could possibly need. Lansbury was incredible as Rose. Only Tyne Daly has come close.

Forgive me, but I happen to be a fan of Midler's performance. Angela Lansbury was really good too, but her performance was compromised by a relatively weak supporting cast and some sluggish orchestral tempos.

In my opinion, the most miscast Mama Rose was Bernadette Peters (although I haven't seen or heard Betty Buckley's performance; she might have been even worse).

Peters was miscast as well but Midler peaked way too early she peaked at everythings coming Up Roses and had no where to go..she over acted Acyt II horribly. she never develed the depths of the role. and she wound up being Bette not Rose. and she screamed alot as an excuse for acting.

Midler was certainly and entertaining Rose but she really had no insight to the character at all. She was way too camp.

Lansbury was the best.

Having now aqquired the Original London Recording, I can officially say Lansbury's my favourite Rose. The clips on Youtube are amazing!

Bernadette's voice made my head hurt. I like it, but it's not the right type for the musical.

So, Salome, even if you're ever able to convince everyone on this forum that your word is solid law on theater (which is very obviously your goal and dream) what will you actually have accomplished with your life?

Christ, people have differing opinions. Get over it that not everyone agrees with you.

Do you mean voice-wise, or on the whole? Because she acted it well, which is half of the job.

After some reflection, Tyne Daly has quickly become my favorite Rose.
