"Gimmick" is very much needed. it shows louise the world of burlesque after that song she is convinced she can do it.

I don’t think a book scene between Louise and Tulsa would be as effective as the song. I feel that the song creates the stirring romantic tone that is necessary for Louise to start falling for Tulsa so that it’s that more devastating when she learns that he ran off with her sister. A book scene just wouldn’t have the same impact for me.

well maybe styhe and sondheim could have come up with something better than that piece of crap they stuck in there. because i always tune out at that moment when I watch Gypsy.

Yeah, I agree. I'm not a fan of the song itself, but I think the feel of the song is vital to that portion of the show.
