After the tedium of her performance in If/Then, I've vowed to never see her on stage again, and one can certainly question the age appropriateness of her in this role.
I saw a bootleg and she looked amazing. I do feel she is not good for the role of Funny Girl. Personally where is Annaleigh Ashford when you need her? Michael Mayer is an excellent director. But I am waiting for this www.berkeleyrep.org/season/1920/14549.asp . JGJ is my favourite actor.
I have to say that Christina Bianco was superb in the revival earlier this year in Paris. It was an English-language production and her take on the role was much more preferable to me than others I’ve seen. I’m not sure Menzel is right for this role.
