Is this a good role to do? Besides the impressive vocal range, how is the part over all? It just seems so blah.. but isnt there some parts that is god/dramatic? (like the whipping part?)

yes. its worth doing. the whipping scne can be heartbreaking if directed correctly.

in the original rex harrison film based on the novel, tuptim and her lover are burned at the stake.

Tuptim is a good part. You can really play with the character and make it your own.
