This reminds me of seeing the revival of Porgy & Bess, or The Gershwin's Porgy & Bess -- whatever it was called. I saw it with a friend who acknowledged Audra McDonald's talent but thought Bess needed to be played by someone who could seem and sound convincingly strung out. "A Billie Holiday type," as he put it, which Audra, her later Tony for playing Billie aside, clearly was not. But in this case the issue is that Gershwin did not compose the character's songs as Du Bose Heyward might have.
