“Does Anne Hathaway have the singing chops for a Broadway musical?

People forget that Mary Martin originated the role on Broadway, but was deemed too old for the movie.

When it comes to musicals, it's the FREAKING MUSIC AND SINGING that rules the day. Acting is secondary.”

walkerke on Dec 8, 2013 at 09:42:54

“I suspect a lot of musical stars would disagree with that. The music, singing and acting all hold equal sway in the most quality productions.”

“I agree that usually, one can get away with "talk singing" when it comes to Tevye's numbers. However, "If I were a Rich Man" and "Sunrise, Sunset" does require some singing chops.

Theodore Bikel attmpted to "talk sing" through "If I were a Rich Man" and the response from the audience was polite, but not raving.”

“For me, when it comes to musicals, if the singing is good and the story is good, the acting can take a back seat.

"Fiddler on the Roof," is of my favorite musicals of all time. The last time I saw it live, Theodore Bikel (spelling?) played Tevye. The man is a great character actor. However his singing was sub-par. Not a great experience for me.”

“Tevye's numbers were not written for a man who could sing. They were written for Zero Mostel.

“When I go to see a musical, I care more about the music and the singing and the story, than the acting.

A so-so actor, who can sing great is better than a fair singer who is an excellent actor.

A great actor and singer, a la Julie Andrews, is a rare treat.”

“Racism is racism.

"Reverse racism" is a term created by the white power brokers.
