To highlight our discussion tonight on Stage vs film acting. Watch the two following clips from the musical Dreamgirls. The first is from the 1982 production of the Broadway musical featuring Jennifer Holliday as Effie. Holliday won a Tony Award for her performance and stopped the show each night with this song. The next clip is from the 2006 film version with Jennifer Hudson as Effie. Hudson won the 2006 Best Supporting Actress Oscar for the film. What are your thoughts on each? Would Holliday’s style work on film? What do you think of each performance in terms of believably, power, emotion?
