Patti LuPone made theater history in the quintessential American musical. Curtain up! Light the lights!
Broadway's leading lady took on her greatest role, in this production staged by the show's author himself: theater legend Arthur Laurents. These two mega-talents joined forces, and the result was "as close to perfection as anything you'll see." (New York Daily News).
Everything came up roses at last, as Broadway's powerhouse performer finally took on the role she was born to play.
Gypsy opened on March 27, 2008 and ran until January 11, 2009. It won three Tony Awards and three Drama Desk Awards for the performances by LuPone (Rose), Boyd Gaines (Herbie) and Laura Benanti (Louise).
