Lee is a trained singer..although his voice isnt what it was.

he is too old for Max now though.

I saw Hearn as Max on broadway...what a performance!

They could make Lee look younger...so why not use Hearn as Max?

Glenn Close can't sing well...... she's a very strong actress and I respect her for that, but she shouldn't raise her voice in song


Have you heard her performance of "With One Look" in ALW's 50th Birthday Gala? She did fantastic job with it! Truly an amazing performance, she sings it a lot better than on the SUNSET recording!

And after watching her perform that number I can't imagine anyone better to play the part of Norma.

Well, except Meryl Streep - who 'lost' the role to Patti LuPone in the original London production...

As far as Betty Schaefer is concerned, I think Anne Hathaway would be ideal. She can sing and act competently and has the right look for the period, and isn't quite so young that it would be too icky if someone Hugh Jackman's age was playing Joe Gillis, especially if they deliberately cast someone close to her age as Artie Shaw. Or, although I'm gagging a little at the thought, Scarlett Johannssen (I'm sorry, I'm not sure how to spell her name) is eager to prove that she can sing as well as act.

I Kind of hope they do it. to some people seeing films are the only way they can see these works of art. nothing beats a live show though but to be truthful im surprised it wasnt done sooner. it won seven tonys after all but was pulled of stage cause of money isues. just now its makeing a come back now would be the perfect second chance to do it and alow another one of Webbers great gems Shine.
