Anne Hathaway: I can't compare to Lea Salonga

Salonga, in her official Twitter account on Tuesday, thanked Hathaway for the kind words.

“Thank you, Anne Hathaway, for mentioning my name in Vogue in the same breath as Patti Lupone. Here's hoping our paths cross someday,” she said.

While she (Anne Hathaway) was preparing to sing the ballad “I Dreamed A Dream” for the movie version of the musical hit “Les Miserables,” Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway admitted that her singing couldn’t compare to that of Filipino Tony Award-winner Lea Salonga.

In the cover story for the December issue of Vogue, Hathaway, who plays Fantine in the movie – the same role performed by Salonga on Broadway and on the 25th anniversary concert of “Les Miserables” – said her most daunting challenge in the movie was singing “I Dreamed A Dream,” which is probably the most recognizable song in the musical.

The last time I watched  Lea Salonga on stage was during her performance in the GOD OF CARNAGE. It's a comedy and she's really great! (all of them) LOL. I believe that's in July (2012) and at my favorite venue for theater plays - the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium at RCBC Plaza in Makati. “God of Carnage” tells the story of two couples who meet to resolve a playground fight between their sons.

The play is produced by Atlantis Productions, the same company behind “Rock of Ages” starring MiG Ayesa, Nyoy Volante, Vina Morales and Aiza Seguerra (who have to wear sexy 1-piece bikini, she's a bar girl in some scenes - ah that's another story!). The whole season was sold-out.

Atlantis next produced play is the Asian premiere of Disney classic “Aladdin.”
Hmmm... yes! I need to post another article to feature Atlantis' exciting theater plays for 2013. Plays like The Full Monty, Adam Family, etc. Visit TicketWorld website at for more details.
