LRA writes: The Hollywood musical has no where left to go. There are only three ways to do a musical anymore it seems with the first being the Moulin Rouge style, casting well known actors that can handle the vocal requirements. Second would be the Sweeney Todd style, casting well known actors who cannot handle the vocal requirements (despite giving it that old college try that is). Third would be what I will refer to as the Burlesque style, casting a musical talent in the lead role in hopes that they can act when needed (another example of this would be the 2006 musical Dreamgirls). I know a lot of people out there were both curious and cautious when it came to the question of whether or not Christina Aguilera could pull off a lead role in a movie and rightfully so. The funny thing is that she wasn't what they or us should have been worrying about because the film has plenty of other bigger issues that needed to be addressed.
