Pick of the Day: Gypsy

Tonight Regina Lyric Musical Theatre opens a five-day run of this Broadway musical at Riddell centre. It’s based on the life of burlesque queen Gypsy Rose Lee (pictured) and her complicated relationship with her mother.

As a kid I remember seeing the movie Gypsy which was the Hollywood version of the musical in which Rosalind Russell starred as the mother Rose Hovik and Natalie Wood starred as her daughter Grace a.k.a. Gypsy Rose Lee. Here’s the trailer. (YouTube)
