I haven't heard anyone besides Lea, but I think she is very good at expressing emotion and her devotion to Tam. I think this performance is better than her performance as Eponine in Les Mis because there's more emotion to be felt here. I would like to hear Jo, but I can't seem to get ahold of a copy or clip...

I would love to hear Jo Ampil in it, because I think she is absolutely amazing- but I don't have the money to buy a cd just to hear one person. I like Lea in Miss Saigon though. (I agree, I don't really like her in Les Mis)

Has to be Jo! she is the most amazing actress ever and has a great voice. She does by far the best rendition of my fav song (i'd give my life for you), but I do love lea too she has a really beautiful voice and before I heard Jo I thought nothing could beat her.

Lea will always be the KIM but Jo is very very very good too. So is Aura Deva (the German Kim- very beautiful voice!!) Both have such beautiful voice that it is quite hard to choose but I really love Lea's clear sweet voice. I would do anything to have a voice like hers :wink:

I know she does. I just can't get ahold of the CSR...lol. Could somebody upload a clip of Jo or something? That way we could all have a better look at the Kims. JMO

I voted Lea cuz I've heard her the most... all I've heard Jo do is Fantine in Les Mis, but she was absolutely breathtaking at that, so I'm not sure how I could choose between them.

And Ruthie Henshall makes a much better Ellen than Claire Moore - I quite like Claire, but Ruthie is Ruthie.

I live in a tiny town 50 miles from Los Angeles. Our dinky library has the OLC but not the CSR, so I've always been curious as to how Jo sounds like.

I voted Joanna because she is such a wonderful actress, Lea has wonderful emotion in her voice but Joanna's seems so much more real and sincere. I love Lea's 'Please' and the hope in her voice when she enters for 'Room 317' but I love Joanna the whole way through! Also having seen them both in performance Joanna completely surpasses Lea on stage, her acting is some of the best I have ever seen in both musical and straight theatre.
