most electrifying broadway musical performance in history, Jul 24, 2008
reviewer: Jerry and Belle Jewler from Columbia, SC
We flew up for one day from South Carolina. It cost a thousand
bucks and we got socked in overnight at LaGuardia, but we wouldn't
have missed Patti LuPone's Gypsy for the world. You have NOT seen
great musical theatre if you miss this one. Staging, cast, orchestra,
production--everything blew us away. But Patti is the rich and
delectably delicious icing on the cake. We left the matinee starry-
eyed, drank a few martinis next door, and thanked our lucky stars for
this experience of a lifetime. Go, Patti! Brava! Brava! Brava!

Excellent Revival, Go For It!, Jun 28, 2008
reviewer: Lks from NJ
I was lucky enough to see Ethel Merman as the original Gypsy so was a little nervous that today's show wouldn't live up to my memory, but I certainly was not disappointed! Patti LuPone is no Ethel Merman, but why would anyone expect her to be? She's herself as Rose, and what a fabulous Rose she is! The story stays focused, the show moves quickly and the supporting cast shines from start to finish. Unlike many revivals, this show is not dated, it never looks tired, and the plot centering on a pushy has-been stage mother is as timely today as it was when it was written. The band, the costumes, Robbins' choreography, the sound & lighting are all top notch. Laura Benanti as Louise blossoms into Gypsy Rose Lee and deservedly, nearly steals the show. Go ahead, take the kids; this is a piece of B'way history they shouldn't miss!

Saw it twice, May 08, 2008
reviewer: DJR from Philadelphia
Saw it twice in one week. That says it all. Absolutely fantastic. Had no interest in the show but like LuPone. I was blown away by the whole production. One of the best performances I've seen in my lifetime. One gentleman sitting behind me actually saw the original with Merman. He said LuPone was superior.

Exceptional, May 01, 2008
reviewer: Tracie from Houston,TX
Loved it from beginning to end. If you are looking for a must not miss show on Broadway, I would HIGHLY recommend this one. Ms. Lapone is nothing short of FANTASTIC.

A MUST SEE DON'T MISS THIS!!!!, Apr 29, 2008
reviewer: Trae112 from New Jersey
The last time I felt this lucky was when as a very young child I was able to see Ethel Merman in Hello Dolly, Victor Garber in Godspell, Patti Lupone as Evita, and Irene Ryan/Ben Vereen in Pippin. I count this experience up among those earlier ones. I will definitely be bragging I got to see Patti Lupone in Gypsy. Patti's voice in unbelievable and she delivers these great lyrics with a real punch. I had chills from the moment the orchestra began and all the way through. The acting and singing are more than entertaining. It's just thrilling!!! The only thing I would change is at the very end..I would have Gyosy and Rose walk off arm in arm. It's a wonderful night in theatre and I hope this show lasts a very long time.
