    She really is about as close to perfect as it gets. Pat Carroll was perfect in the film and Sherie Rene Scott is perfect on stage. There is an interview with Sherie over at playbill.com. Sherie said she hasn't seen the film in years and she didn't watch it in preparation for the role. She had Alan Menken sing to her and she interpreted the character in her own way. Now that's a sign of a good actress.

    That's kind of funny because Pat Carroll did the exact same thing apparently, according to an old Jim Hill article.
