Paige can be good. She definitely improved with age. Her Mrs Lovette is painful to hear though. Completely the wrong score for her.

Chenoworth can be great, with the right material, other times, she keeps getting paid to flog her schtick. It's nice to get to hear her sing properly on occasion.

Who do you think are the most overrated professional actors/performers on Broadway/the West End/wherever?

I'm going to kick us off and say either Hunter Parrish or Darren Criss.


Why do you think Darren criss is overrated?


Oh please, how is he not overrated? His voice is so dull, he has hardly any range and no vibrato, but people who have absolutely no idea about music and singing laud him as though he's God's gift! No thanks.

For me Sarah Brightman must be the most overrated musical actress in history! I think she's just plain awful, and embarrasing to watch. Sadly she performs with so many great people.

Se.. I hink most peopel know that Sarah Brightman is a terrible actress. So I dont think she is over-rated and she hasnt acted much at all in the last 20 years.

My circle of friends usually don't know that many musical actresses though, but they all know Sarah Brightman, and most of them think she is absolutely fantastic. When I say I'm not a fan I usually get told I don't know what I'm talking about ](*,)
