i recently saw Gina as christine in phantom and thought she was amazing and thoroughly enjoyed her performance and wanted to know what you all thought about her as christine or as cosette.

She was a tolerable Cosette. Which actually is high praise indeed, considering the character as written is one of the most awful, bland, insipid, boring characters of contemporary musical theatre. :3

haha! That made me laugh about Cosette! Too true! I also find Marius in Les Mis quite boring and really don't understand why he'd go for Cosette instead of Eponine. One day it'll happen!

I also saw Gina at ALW's Birthday Concert. I really enjoyed her performance but saw Katie Hall when I went to Phantom. Might have to go again to try and see Gina!

I have seen Gina in Les Mis and I must say she was the poorest of all the Cosettes I have seen - I disliked her voice, which to me sounded weak.  I have yet to see her in Phantom (only heard recordings) but her voice sounds very harsh and nowhere near "pretty" enough for the role in my opinion.  I am not a fan!

That was her voice that was not pretty enough, not her looks before anyone moans.  She is actually quite nice looking lol!
