Does anyone else think that she would be the PERFECT Donna in Mamma Mia? I DO!

Streisand is about to turn 64. She's probably too old to play Donna. I think Donna is supposed to be in her 40s. Plus, I'm not sure if Streisand's voice and singing style are suited for ABBA songs.

I agree about the age of Donna. I hadn't really thought about Streisand's age, but I was thinking more in general. She may not have exact singing style that the show requires, but I still think the role just fits her. I mean, imagine her singing "The Winner Takes It All." Wow. lol.

I agree that she could handle "The Winner Takes It All". It would suit her style of singing.

I guess it could work... She'd be interesting.

If you take away the age thing that is.

Well... have you ever heard her sing "I know him so well"? it's just amazing! so I guess she could handle songs by Benny and Bjorn

Try as I might, I cannot really take the idea of Barbra Streisand as Donna seriously. Whether or not she could sing the music is not the issue; there's no reason to believe that she couldn't sing some of the songs magnificently. I just don't think that the role suits her at all at this point in her life and career.

I feel like vocally she could handle everything (though she is getting older and her voice isn't quite the magic it used to be), but I couldn't see her as Donna.

Meryl Streep is really good in this role so it's hard to imagine anybody else in it.

Yes I really agree that Donna sung very well in the Mamma Mia, it would be grateful to here the songs of this movie. There are many who didn't like the songs of that movie, but it depends on the choices of different persons.

No, I think Meryl Streep is perfect for this role. She can do better from this, but this role suited her.
