Nathan Gunn was not dynamic, but was at least sincere, and I also found him preferable to Joshua Henry in the last revival, who I didn't believe for a single minute. (I have liked Henry in several other things, including Scottsboro Boys and Violet, so I think it's less an issue with his performance in Carousel than with overall problems I had with that entire production.)

That said, the best overall Billy I've ever seen is far and away Michael Hayden from the 1990s revival - and while his voice didn't bother me either in London or New York, I believe opinion was nearly universal that he gave a tremendous performance that wasn't especially well-sung at all. Which I guess proves the original poster's point.
