Jessica Biel Debuts 'Guys & Dolls' Musical

Jessica Biel Debuts 'Guys & Dolls' Musical

Jessica Biel makes her stage debut in a three-night performance of the musical Guys and Dolls at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday (August 1).

The 27-year-old actress played the part of Sarah Brown, a Manhattan missionary at odds with a gang of gamblers — and eventually in love with one of them.

“The people (costars) are so skilled, and they just know how to be on a stage,” Jessica has said. “So I feel like I’m learning and taken through, taking me along, they’re there for me. So it’s been a very nurturing experience.”

Afterwards, Jessica headed home with boyfriend Justin Timberlake. Other pictures show Jessica leaving rehearsal.

# 1

She does have a beautiful voice!!! I never would’ve thought she can pull off a Broadway performance.

# 2

not as bad as i thought. but not that good either.

# 3

She’s not so bad! Pretty voice. I’m shocked but she does breath kind of weird but then again I don’t know anything about singing so whatever. lol

# 5

I like it. Her singing instantly lifted my spirits and I was already in a great mood.

# 6

Well, she sings better than Katie Holmes dances.

# 7

There is nothing special about her singing performance, not impressive at all. And I believe I have objective opinion. Her strong point is her athletic-looking body, other than that I do not know what her talent is.

# 8

not bad but not good either.

lmao. i have to agree with #6. her performance is so much better than holmes.

# 9

she sounds pretty good here, especially for a live performance. i like her version of “mad about the boy”.

she’s supposed to be drunk in this scene, so she sounds really good actually.

Not surprised. She has shown that besides being a gorgeous woman, she’s also very talented. Charming voice and marvelous performance, loved it…

Really good voice. Not sure it would sustain 8 shows a week but for this she’s great. Not an easy company to hold your own against by any means. brave thing to do. Shes doing more than Katie Holmes did, miming and wandering about a bit.

She can sing, though she can’t act and has a masculine body and distorted face (from too much plastic work).

People expect so little of her, that when she can do something they are shocked.

Just a bit more practice and she can actually be okay. Still not up to par, but it’s hard to keep up with the seasoned vets.

good voice!

I don’t know what to make of her voice. I’ve taken voice lessons before, so, I know a little bit of the technical aspects. I want to say it’s good, but it’s also not. I guess it has a nice potential to be good. She can carry a tune, and I think that with more training, she will only get better. For now, I do pick up that she falls a little flat on a few notes, and when she goes for the high notes, she’s really more yelling than harnessing the strength from her diaphragm to reach those notes, so as a result, her voice kind of sounds pinched at those moments of the song.

May be voice is a matter of taste. For instance I love Mariah’s voice, but can not stand Whitney Houston. Whitney tries too much, which sounds terribly unpleasant to my ears. Effortless singing is natural. I do not like Biel’s voice.

I am surprised. Pleasantly so. The gir can sing. It’s really difficult to sing live at such a huge venue. This wasn’t a small theater, this was out doors, which is an acoustic challenge no matter how good a sound system you have. I thought she did really well.

Wow, I’m pleasantly surprised!

@observer: #1) You should “observe” your grammar and spelling it’s “maybe” not “may be” #2) completely different music here and #3) Mariah and Whitney BOTH over sing to the point of being considered too annoying to listen to for more than one song.

love love love it
she has an amazing voice!!
very few hollywood actress could do same and take risk like this
Congrat Jess!! Love you
You rocks!!

her voice is nothing special. still a horrible actress

wow, she’s not bad at(not extraordinarly good either) , i am pleasently surprised

i guess i’ve heard worse but.. uhh.. couldn’t they have chosen someone better for this role? couldnt they get anyone else?
jessica biel is man-ish and had an ugly face.
