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
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.
