Post Liza as Norma...
Hey, I'd love to see Liza as Norma. But I couldn't say whether this casting would happen though. My gut feeling is that it would be unlikely.

Later days

Acting wise, I'd love it. Unfortunately, her voice is shot to sh!t. If she sang it it would be physically painful - for her and us.

Never in a million years should anyone but Glenn Close play this part on screen.

You can capitalise her surname all you want - the fact of the matter remains that, in the last few years, Ms. Minelli has suffered from severe health problems. I heard her sing live little over a fortnight ago and her voice is in abolsutely no condition to be attemtping Sunset Boulevard. Did you miss the part where I said she would act it fine? I have no problem with casting her on an acting choice - but until she gets healthy, gets off the drink once and for all (if we are to believe David Gest) and gets her voice into its formerly great shape then she should not be allowed anywhere near a musical - film or stage. And, as to the fat ass comment - have you seen her ass lately?

People don't make fun of Liza - they make honest comments. She is out of shape and her voice is, at the moment, awful. I don't say this to make fun of Liza - I adored her in Cabaret! I say this because it's true. She is not in a fit state - physically or vocally - to be making a musical. Cabaret was made 31 years ago and at that time she was magical. She isn't anymore. As to spelling - when you learn to spell legend then I will remember it's Minnelli with 2 Ns. Also, get it right - she is 57, not 56. As to the comment about sounding 'that good' when I'm 56 - I hope to God I sound a little better. Barbara Cook, Julia McKenzie, Bernadette Peters - all of these are women in their 50s or above and all sound a lot better, vocally, than Liza Minnelli.

If you want to make comments on my 'fat ass' - which you've never seen - then we can all make fun of Liza's ass - which we've all seen.

Finally, what gives me the right to make that comment? The same right that allows you to call me a 'bastard' - free speech, my friend. Do you honestly believe she is vocally fit to be in a musical? Truthfully?

I, too, respect Ms. Minnelli. I don't think anyone here said they didn't. Her voice may not be strong enough for a Broadway musical that requires 8 shows a week of belting. However, I think enough has been said and we should stick to the original question here.


I personally think if Liza sounds like on the Liza's Back! CD, she could do it. Yes, it's shot but at least she can sing. She'd be a great Norma, IMO but I doubt she'll ever actually be cast.
