okay but imagine Bernadette Peters, Patti LuPone, and Tyne Daly as the strippers in You Gotta Have A Gimmick in a movie version of Gypsy

PATTI LUPONE BUT BE THE ONE WITH THE TRUMPET BECAUSE HER VOICE IS WONDERFUL AND BRASSY

BERNADETTE WOULD BE THE FLUTTERY ONE BECAUSE HER VOICE IS ALL LIGHT AND SWEET

AND TYNE WOULD BE THE LIT UP ONE BECAUSE HER VOICE IS LOUD AND ATTENTION GETTING

1959 Original Broadway Cast - Overture

beyond-the-hills-of-tomorrow:

mt-orchestrations:

Overture to Gypsy, often cited as the greatest overture of all time (for good reason). Music by Jule Styne, orchestration by Sid Ramin and Robert Ginzler.

This is actually third in my list of favorite Overtures. Behind Candide and the original version of the overture to Merrily We Roll Along.

playbill:

TODAY IN THEATRE HISTORY: In 1959, Ethel Merman is indomitable stage mother Rose in the original Broadway production of Gypsy. Arthur Laurents based his book on the memoirs of stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, with a score by Jule Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Jerome Robbins stages what will be a 702-performance run. Future mountings will feature Angela Lansbury, Tyne Daly, Linda Lavin, Bernadette Peters and Patti LuPone.

Gypsy family portrait holla!

I just started making weird squeaking noises when I saw this and the cat judged me so hard that she just up and left.

Between Laura Benanti’s moos

Leigh Ann Larkin’s vibratto

Patti Lupone’s over the top acting and random stage entrances

and “WHY NOT DAINTY JUNE!?!?”

this scene is one of the funniest scenes on stage, soooo good.
