Gypsy (2003 Broadway Revival Cast) (Audio CD),19 August, 2003|
List price $17.98
FANTASTIC! / 5
This must be one of the best cd's I have EVER heard! A starry cocktail of failed dreams, regrets, pushy mum's and vampy burlesque entertainers. Not only the best revival of this musical but without a doubt the best version. For a start Bernadette Peters stuns as pushy stagemother Mama Rose making her character believable and her songs exceedingly enjoyable. Undoubtably her best songs being "Rose's Turn" and also "Everything's Coming Up Roses" are a pleasure to listen to, her vocals soaring and her true musical theatre pelt make her songs the most enjoyable, however, her lesser songs such as "Small World" and "You'll Never Get Away From Me" are not particularly desireable as I found the melodics slightly boring. Her vocals are still second to none. Tammy Blanchard exceeds all standards as Louise (soon to become Gypsy Rose Lee). Her first solo song "Little Lamb" touches the heart and atfirst she gives the impression of being meek and not a strong singer (intentionally) however, during her "Let Me Entertain You" number (in which we gradually hear her climb out of her hermit shell and become the famous burlesque entertainer and progress through theatre after theatre throughout the country) Blanchard amazes and we hear the full blast of her voice. Although the role of Louise is secondary to that of Mamma Rose, Blanchard's talents are a wow and are definitely worth the listen. Another great highlight of the cd is Kate Reinders' bubbly and energetic voice as Dainty June (in particular her duet with Blanchard- "If Momma Was Married"). Also, an immense amount of credit goes to the children of the piece- Heather Tepe is literally "a bundle of dynamite" and has the most angelic and youthful child voice I have ever heard whist the chorus of boys who back her provide punch and zest. John Dosset's Herbie (although only featured in practically one song) plays the character to perfection.
In conclusion, this cd is certainly NOT to be missed and is also a must have for EVERY musical theatre buff and even for those who are not.
