Post subject:  Liza in Gypsy

I was listening to the recording of Liza with a Z, and she has the songs 'some people' and 'Rose's turn' on it. She sings the songs in a fantastic way, I wonder if they ever offered her the role of Rose in a production of Gypsy ?
Btw I think Judy Garland as Rose and Liza as Gypsy would've been perfect casting in a movie version.

* Are you sure you're not referring to the 'Liza's back' album? If not I'd be VERY interested to hear her sing these songs from so long ago, because in this album (2002) she sounds horrible IMO.

* I don't think she could handle the role (I mean physically, at least).

Yes I was referring to Liza's Back. Sorry about that. I think this is the only album of hers that has Rose's turn. There is a video on youtube of her performing 'Rose's turn'

Liza may have made a great Rose if she hadn't burned out as an actress and ruined her voice.

Now, I would shudder to hear her attempt "Rose's Turn." Her voice is soooo screwed.

And... as much as I adore Judy... she could never have been Rose. Her personality would have been way wrong for it.

I think Judy could have made a great Rose actually. look at her in A Star is Born especially the 2nd half of that film.

But Esther Blodgett is not even remotely like Rose...

Judy would have definitely had the vulnerability for the more emotional scenes in the show, but I doubt she would have been able to capture Rose's brutality. I don't think she would been pushy or aggressive enough.

Judy would have been amazing, waaaay better that Rore Russell in my opinion...
Liza, not so much, I think her voice is gone for good, at least on such a demanding role...

Liza would've been perfect for Rose back when she still had her voice.

Seriously. If Liza was any good nowadays, she'd be a good Rose. Some of my friends don't believe me when I say that Liza Minnelli was once a great actress and singer, but her work in Cabaret is damn brilliant.

Now, Judy as Rose? Hell yeah! She could have been the be-all, end-all Rose.
