Great Range

Every now and then, there is a star on a musical stage with such a charisma that you don't care about the singing.  Think of Glenn Close who turned the musical "Sunset Boulevard" into an unforgettable event on Broadway. In the Fifties, Gertrude Lawrence who had no voice always brought magic to the theater. Kurt Weill once praised that quality: "She has the greatest range between C and C sharp of anyone I ever knew".

  1. Since a theatre actor has got some reputation he has the heart to sing on stage. Regardless if he/she is talented or not. What is the music they do prefer priorly? The songs of Kurt Weill. They try to do it like Marlene did it: Smokey low tone pitch between C and C sharp.

  2. Think of Heinz Rühmann. Once I had the opportunity to escort him on piano and I remember that I couldn´t hear his voice.

  3. I enjoyed Glenn Close very much, when I saw the Dangerous Liaisons, but I didn't even know she was also singing.
