Showtune Sunday: “As If We Never Said Goodbye” from Streisand, LuPone, Buckley and … Colfer!
I haven’t done this in a couple of years and I’ve certainly never included Chris Colfer in the mix!
It’s time to compare various versions of As If We Never Said Goodbye from Sunset Boulevard.
I’ve included Colfer with divas Barbra Streisand, Patti LuPone, Betty Buckley, Glenn Close and Elaine Paige.
Whose version do you think is the best?
My two cents: Buckley is a stunner! I don’t think I’d watched her perform this song before and, as usual, she knocks it out of the park! LuPone is my second choice while Close is surprisingly subpar. I saw her in the Los Angeles production and remember it being better than she sounds here at the Tony Awards.
Would love your thoughts!
