Broadway and Vocals Don't Mix

The vocals in the musical drive me bonkers.

Just to counter the other person who commented... I hate the movie vocals. *shudder* OBC ALL THE WAY.

Be yourself. Because if you're busy being someone else, then who's gonna be you?

Are you kidding?! In the play the way she hits that high note in Seasons of Love is horrid.

Are you saying that Tracie Thomas is any better? I'm not saying she's bad, but... and they're all so much younger in the play, so they sound better. And I hate Rosario Dawson as Mimi. I guess I like the play better because it has more of a homegrown feel... it's so processed and computerized in the movie.

Tracie's Voice is Amazing

Tracie has an amazing voice, so yes, I am saying that I think she's alot better. I know how you feel, though. I couldn't stand The Phantom of the Opera being made into a movie.

play

Well, the originals are usually always better. The Mimi in the play, while she was not as pretty as the one in the movie, I have a slight attachment to her raspy, voice.
