Liza is one of my all-time favorite Broadway stars. She's looking drop-dead gorgeous these days and her voice is better than ever. If she does get cast as Norma, you won't hear me complaining.

As Tim stated earlier. . .Glenn Close. Faith Brown would be fabulous, but doesn't have the selling name, unfortunately.

Liza??. . .I guess it could be worse and we could be stuck with Babs, but one is only the lesser of two evils. :)

NAAAHHH! She's not quite right for the part -- even if she were sober.

Scorcese is talking out of his hat; and only out of loyalty to his fella-wop! I couldn't take Liza seriously as Norma. So, what'll Scorcese do -- add a few murders to the story? Sheeesh!

I'd say Carol Burnett!!

I think Liza is great, saw her in London and ok she mimed a few but she was good, but with filming if the timescale was long enough she might manage it. They'll need a name and whilst I adored Faith Brown I'd love to see Debra Bryne but it won't happen.

Mind you with Marni Nixon being discussed for a revival anything can happen!

Debra Byrne would be sensational, but as you said, not enough selling power, unfortunately. Her acting and her vocals are unmatched in Norma (personal opinion, of course).

Marni Nixon!?!?!? Oh my. . . .

I really hope she gets the part, even though it's a tough score and her voice isn't what it was. I still think she'd be unforgettable - she can be larger then life but still bring a human quality to Norma. I saw Betty Buckly do the role on Brooadway and was blown away but I'm sure they wouldn't let her do it.

Post What about Madonna?
Dear Musicals.Net Posters,

I just wanted to mention someone that hadn't been mentioned. Besides, we know that Madonna can act like a first class bitch, 'cause we've seen Evita. (That's no offence to her, 'cause that was part of her act)

I have not seen the musical, but I have the Glen Close recording which I think is awsome, so I am rooting for her.

I think it should be Glenn Close.
She is not the best singer but a top actress.
She would be a great Norma.
What about Elaine Paige?
She was great in the London production.

If Sunset Blvd were made into a musical movie (a la Chicago/Phantom) then yes, Liza would be an amazing Norma in character and voice (they can easily enhance her voice post production)

Plus, like Gloria Swanson... she IS Norma.

Gloria Swanson, a long forgotten but once famous actress longing for her big return played Norma... the same person...

Liza... a once massive icon of stage and screen who still believes she's got it and her popularity has never dropped, and who loves acting and being in front of an audience could play Norma... the same person

All this discussion is pretty pointless now with the news that Glenn Close has been signed for the movie.
