Sarah Brightman Shows Britney How It's Done

British singer SARAH BRIGHTMAN has wowed fans with her return to the stage in America - with one excitable critic comparing the 43-year-old's performance to BRITNEY SPEARS.

The former wife of ANDREW LLOYD-WEBBER has won rave reviews from US critics with her solo show at the ARROWHEAD POND in Anaheim, California last weekend (13MAR04).

But for HOLLYWOOD REPORTER pundit DARYLL MORDEN, Brightman's performance conjured up images of 22-year-old pop superstar Spears.

Morden wrote: "She's something of an anomaly in popular musicals...like Britney Spears for grown-ups (or is that CHER who does that?), with various costumes for Brightman, a troupe of female dancers in harem-girl outfits, video imagery and a few special effects."

Brightman shot to fame back in 1981 when she won a part in Webber's musical CATS, which then led to other prestigious London West End roles.
