Weekly Poll Results: Which Broadway Diva Would You Go Back In Time To See?

The Broadway Diva performance you would love to go back in time to see is Julie Andrews in My Fair Lady. I can't help but agree with the voters on this one, especially because we no longer have the chance to hear this lovely songbird's voice after a botched surgery left her unable to sing. My Fair Lady starring Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews, with a score by Lerner and Loewe, opened on Broadway in 1956. And to have been there to witness it live...well, wouldn't it be loverly.

Close behind Andrews in the voting where Ethel Merman in Gypsy, Donna McKechnie in A Chorus Line, and Angela Lansbury in Mame.


  1. i think i missed this poll, but i'd have gone with ETHEL all the way.

  2. If you would have voted for Ethel democracry diva, it would have been a tie for the lead!
