LuPone, Midler, Lansbury, Merman. Peters was good but her voice was not for this musical

Lansbury was theo ne who made the role real and defined it. no one can top her. Lupone actually did well in the role..i'd put LuPone behind russell but ahead of midler.

Peters was totally miscast.

We actually agree. I have Peter's recording of Gypsy and it's not good at all. She has her good sections but overall, it sucks.

Midler was truley breathtaking and astonishing in this role.

Midler had potenti\al. she destroyyed it by overacting....she peaked waaayy too early in the script. she built her whole performance up to "Everythings Coming Up Roses" and had nowhere to go in act II.

She yelled and overacted throughout the whole second half. it was bad.

unlike Roz Russell who properly peaked at Roses Turn in the original film.
