Depp To Take Singing Test

JOHNNY DEPP has been ordered to take a voice test before composer STEPHEN SONDHEIM will give his blessing for the actor to star in musical SWEENEY TODD. The PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN star has performed in bands since he was 13, but the 76-year-old musical theatre legend fears his vocals may be too rock 'n' roll to play the murderous barber. A spokesman for Sondheim says, "He wants to make sure that all versions of his works are the best possible."

Is it time to tune up the pipes? Even the best vocalists need expert coaching to be at their best. I believe Johnny can bring to this role what he has undoubtedly done before, he will give his best effort. He might have to cut back on smoking to have a better vocal performance. It may take more effort than he at first imagined, yet his fans know that he will deliver, and deliver well.
