I watched it and enjoyed it very much. Carrie's voice just keeps getting better and better. I'll be buying the soundtrack.
While Carrie's acting could definitely have been better, I thought it was good enough, especially with the talent she had around her. The woman who played the Reverend Mother was fantastic….both in acting and singing. Overall, this version seemed a little more lighthearted than the movie version, and I hadn't expected that.
It really was quite an amazing thing they all did, performing this live for TV. I'm happy for them all, especially Carrie, that the ratings were so good. I agree, it took a lot of guts for her to take this on. Good for her!
