Post Who's played Rose?
Just for my information. I know that Ethel Merman, Bebe Neuwirth, Bernadette Peters and Tyne Daly have all taken a crack at it. I'm just wondering who else has.

I was at Barnes and Noble today, and they had like 3 different Gypsy recordings, but not the one with Merman.
How strange.

Rosalind Russell played 'Mama Rose' in the 1962 movie. She's really good in it. She could've done more better when she gets mad at Grandzigars' offer though. Otherwise than that, she did good. Bette Midler also played her in the 1993 T.V. cast. Bernadette Peters is the best of them all!

She acted the part well, but she did no singing. She was beautifully dubbed, however, by the fantastic Lisa Kirk. Just in case you didn't know, there you are!

O.O
I could've SWORN that Bebe has played Rose. Also, I quite liked Bernadette's Rose. My favorite has to be Tyne Daly, no matter how much I love Angela Lansbury.

I can't stand Tyne on the recording. She sounds terrible. Merman owns it, but Lansbury is amazing and I, too, really enjoy Bernadette's Rose.

I loved Tyne on the CD. Oh well.
Merman couldn't pull off the emotional level of Rose's Turn. When she does the "M-m-mama?"'s, it doesn't sound believable in the slightest.

Angela Lansbury is my favourite. Even on disc, she is truly phenomenal.

And I hated Rosalind Russell in the role; I can't imagine anybody doing worse. I don't think she acted the role well at all.

Later days
David

I loved Roz Russell and Rose...she acted the hell out of that role. even with being partially dubbed.

still Lansbury is the finest Rose to grace a stage or screen.
