Peters is even worse live in the role than she is on the recording. ugh terrible piece of miscasting.

I saw Bernadette as Rose three times and she was truly flawless.

Flawless? it was her worst performance.

peaking too early in the show
vocally being wrong for the part
the lack of bitterness with her father
the way she went for laughs more than for feeling.

She was the worst Rose I saw and I am a die hard Peters fan.

Seriously...Tyne Daly was 10 times the mama rose Peters was...and so was Roz Russell in the film. I even saw an amazing regional actress as Rose that blew the pants of Peters.

and based solely on the cast recordings..Angela Lansbury is the Rose to judge all others by.

That's your opinion. My opinion is that she was flawless.

I don't think she was flawless in everything. I think she was horribly miscast in Annie Get Your Gun. But in Gypsy, she was perfect (in my opinion). It's my opinion. Accept it and move on.
