Last night Leanna and I headed to Times Square to check out the Tony award winning musical Gypsy with Patty Lupone. It was awesome. Patty sang and acted her heart out and got a standing ovation before the play was even over. The girl who played Gypsy was also great as well - Laura Benaniti, I believe her name was. All in all, a stellar performance by all!
The movie reminded me a lot of Beaches. I wonder if the filmmakers were inspired by it. I could even see Bette Midler doing a mean Mama Rose. I'm interested now in reading the memoir the play was based on.
Next week I'm going behind the scenes of Gypsy for a Better TV story so I'll have more to post then, after I chat with the cast.
But if you get a chance to see it, definitely go for it!
