Des  wasn't any better.......

Agree with you on Ghost, thought Mark Evans was really good with Siobhan.

I thought Duncan James was great in Legally. He didn't have to act at all - he just looked the part of the empty male females swoon over, and, because he had  fans in most shows, he always got the loudest reception of anyone in the role = as they swooned when he just walked on stage.

Bit like Jerry springer in Chicago. Couldn't act, couldn't remember his lines, couldn't sing, but let his Roxie get on with it,  and looked more like a shifty lawyer than anyone else I saw act it.

It was jimmy Osmond in Grease, not Donny - Jimmy played Teen Angel (and I notice an upcoming tour has Russell Grant playing Teen Angel).   I adored Ramin as Val jean. Going way (way) back, Pamela Stephenson as Mabel in Pirates of Penzance.  Phil Jupitus as King Arthur in Spamalot.   And while I admire her talent, Alexia Khadime as Eponine .. didn't do it for me.  At all.

pretty much any random Celebrity in musical Theatre -

coming to mind


david hasslehof - Jeckyl and Hyde - cringe
amanda seyfried (the goat ) les mis - goat "bbbbaaa""
america ferrera - chicago - tracked most of the show
marti pello - anything - dier
martine mchucheon - my fair lady - was never on
jane lynch - annie - hideous (she should have just played her glee character )
