30 Musicals in 30 Days: Your Current Favourite Musical

Post a song from your current favourite.

Stephen Sondheim, Jule Styne and Arthur Laurents’s Gypsy is my all-time favourite musical. It is also my current favourite. It’s a fantastic musical, brilliantly conceived and executed. It features one of the most complex female characters in musical theatre and it is always great when another actress steps up to bat and puts her own stamp on the role.

The second-to-last major revival featured Bernadette Peters. Many disliked her in the role. Many disliked the production in which she appeared. For me, she’s not the best Rose, but she’s a long way off from the worst one. I really enjoy listening to her cast recording of the show. Here she is, boys: Bernadette doing “Rose’s Turn”, along with an overview of the production in which she appeared.
