Post Karen Olivo and the cast on letterman
I don't know if you've all seen this yet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6z5CNaPh-Ro&NR=1

I think this is pretty exciting. I think Karen Olivo is fantastic.

Post WSS Broadway Revival--Anita vs. Tony:
Karen Olivo has a wonderful voice and is a wonderful actress as well, although she doesn't seem like she's such a great dancer. She seems to play the role of Anita quite well, although her voice seems somewhat forced in some parts.

Matt Cavenaugh, on the other hand, seems too soft-voiced and too soft-demeanored for Tony. He also uses far too much vibrato when he sings the WSS number Something's Comin'.

Can Karen dance like Chita? No.
Does she rock the shit out of it anyways? YES!

I've been obsessed with this video for like the past week. It's amazing.

Also, can Karen Olivo get any sexier than in that video?

Yes, I LOVED her on the performance, BUT, I don't know if I'm too happy that they dumbed down the dancing for her. She went to CCM, bitch should KNOW how to dance!!

Oh of course, and she sells the HELL out of it, too! I'm not complaining, I just wish she would have pushed herself harder, that's all. She's SUCH a talented young woman, it would have been AMAZING to see her solo it out in the number doing leaps and what not. All the same, she's still brillz and probs gonna get the TONY!

She does the solo.
They just cut it out of this along with another verse (I think...)
For time and whatnot.
