Has anybody on here seen this?

Kind of a mix of Marlene Dietrich, Lauren Bacall, and Bruce Vilanch.

She sings like a goddamn frog.

She would have been a more fun Margo than Christine "Not a leading lady but a character woman" Ebersole in the Encores! "Applause."

I think she has had some real health challenges, so it’s actually pretty inspiring to see her touring. She is really putting herself out there, in full voice. I would probably enjoy the stories, but the music isn’t to my taste.

WAR OF THE ROSES is on Hulu now. I watched it today. Haven’t seen it since it was first in theaters. She was gorgeous and sexy in it.

The only thing her voice should be finding is the number to the nearest Jenny Craig support group. Bitch should be staring in Cereal Mom instead of Serial Mom.

Body Heat...

Kathleen was never better.

A lot of whiskey and cigarette smoke have passed through those vocal chords. (Which would be evident even from Mars).

I was under the impression that she suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, the treatment of which involves copious amounts of steroids. That type of steroid use causes women to gain weight and probably helps to explain the vocal changes as well.

I loved her in Body Heat, and she was great in the Kominsky Method. I'd pay to see her in this if I felt like flying to NYC. I actually may still.

She's a LOOOOOOOG way from Body Heat.

Her voice was considered very sexy and unique back than. Time is a cruel mistress.

Kathleen is ready to do Hairspray.

I like listening to her speak, even if her voice is no longer "sexy". She was hands down the funniest part of Californication.

I worked in a boutique on Madison Ave. that Kathleen would frequent. She really is a lovely woman. I remember one time when she came in no on recognized her except for me. I had already gotten over being starstruck the first couple of times she came in. So this time I just sat back and watched everyone else be clueless as to who had just walked in. She was wearing a corrective boot on her foot and walking with a cane. I asked her what happened to her, and I'll never forget it. In her iconic husky voice she said, "I broke my toe!" As soon as she spoke, every head popped up, immediately recognizing who was in the store.

Everyone loves Romancing the Stone. Kathleen Turner was perfect in it.

I would love to see this show. She is an incredible storyteller.

by Anonymousreply 20November 21, 2021 8:59 AM

Yeah, I dont know about the singing but a good voice for story telling. Maybe a monologue would be a better fit for that voice. She's like the female version of Morgan Freedman at this point.

My oh my. This thread is too white, wearing—and it’s after Labor Day.

It looks great. She's not Streisand and doesn't try to be. This kind of show has been on stage for a century. Just story telling with music and the voice is hers and fine.

Adele should bookmark this thread. I looove Kathleen BTW, but just saying...

I love that she embraces who she is. Seems she has been through a lot. Blessings to her!

It's funny to see her trying to be a cabaret performer, considering how dismissive she has been of musicals.

She mentioned being a Fandango girl in Sweet Charity. You can use that as a search term for the answer you seek.

1. I don't believe that Castro story.

2. WHO is that audience member at about 1:30? I could swear it's someone mildly famous. A trans (I think) person who's been in the news, or an actress from somewhere? Don't they look super-familiar for some reasons?

by Anonymousreply 29November 21, 2021 11:17 PM

She seems to be one of those actors who can act a song, rather than be a good singer. I guess Rex Harrison did the same.

Methinks she needs to keep looking. It's no doubt somewhere between Lucille Ball's post 1975, and Henry Kissinger's.

She's very good on The Kominsky Method.

It arrived in my (postal) mailbox today. (Sans hand moisturizer.)

I've seen Turner live twice. The first time during her Broadway run in "The Graduate" with Alicia Silverstone as her daughter and with Adam Goldman Joshua Levin Jonathan Friedman...whatever the fuck his name was from American Pie. Terrible play. Awful. Turner was particularly heinous, delivering insipid dialogue, her basso profondo assaulting even those in the nosebleeds. Silverstone was shrill and had terrible timing and inopportune pauses, as of she had mistaken the theatre's stage for a film productions's soundstage. I walked out at intermission. The second time I saw her was as a speaker at a fundraiser. She was better. Told some good stories. I might see Turner for the anecdotes, but I suspect they have all been told before. That should be the tagline: instead of "Finding My Voice," "See It For The Patter."

R40 -it's similar to Charles Busch and his desire to be a cabaret singer. We just close our ears until he gets back to another anecdote.
