Coming Up Roses


Since I am staying right in Times Square, in the heart of the theater district, I am taking advantage of the opportunity to see a show or two. Tonight was Gypsy, which I was scheduled to see a month or so ago but it turned out Patti LuPone's understudy was on that night, and I decided to wait to see the star herself. LuPone is the closest thing we have today to an Ethel Merman or a Mary Martin--a genuine Broadway star. The show was much better than I remembered it and it was easy to see why LuPone bagged a Tony for her tour de force performance.
