Hope this link works, it's really a thought-provoking article (from Variety, Oct 16):

"As for who those people [icons] might be, the field is wide open. Michael Riedel, theater columnist at the New York Post, puts Nathan Lane, a generally popular pick, at the top of his list. He also suggests Hugh Jackman, but notes that "his movies haven't really gone anywhere."

Riedel's also high on Bernadette Peters, as a musical star, and Cherry Jones, in the drama department. "

I can't believe they asked *Riedel* for his opinion. But, he seems to get it about Bernadette.

After speaking to Riedel at the Show Business film @ the Tribeca Film Festival it seems that while he has tremendous respect for Bernadette as a performer, he didn't like her as Mama Rose. While he might have not gone about his opinion in a mannered way, you can't blame him for stating it. He even stated that he watched ITW and SITPWG numerous times! In ending, he's a gossip columist and I wouldn't expect any less from him! lol

"I chose and my world was shaken. So what? The choice may have been mistaken; the choosing was not. You have to move on."
