Post Most theatrical GYPSY song?
Obviously, GYPSY is a very theatrical show, but what do you consider to be the most theatrical song in the show? I'm talking in terms of how the song is executed, constructed, etc. My director says "All I Need..."; I say "Gimmick". What about the rest of you?

By theatrical you mean... dramatic?

Agreed. "You Gotta Have a Gimmick" as well as June's show-within-a-show musical numbers.
