On May 5th and 6th the 2008 Broadway Cast Recording of GYPSY took place starring Tony® and Olivier® Award-winning Patti LuPone, three-time Tony® Award-winner Boyd Gaines and Tony® Award-nominee Laura Benanti.  The critically acclaimed new production, directed by theatrical legend Arthur Laurents, had its official opening at Broadway's St. James Theatre (246 West 44th Street) on March 27.  The new Broadway cast recording of GYPSY is produced by multiple Grammy® nominee Robert Sher (Sugar Babies, Stephen Sondheim's Follies, The Wizard of Oz, 1776 (revival), Evil Dead The Musical and the upcoming Time Life release Annie: 30th Anniversary Cast Recording).  The recording session took place at Clinton Recording Studios (653 Tenth Avenue).

GYPSY, the musical fable suggested by the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, is written by three legendary theatrical giants.  The book is by two-time Tony Award winner Arthur Laurents, with music by two-time Tony Award winner Jule Styne and lyrics by multiple Tony Award winner Stephen Sondheim.  The 1959 blockbuster, originally directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins, boasts a legendary score with such classic songs as "Everything's Coming Up Roses," "Rose's Turn" and "Some People."
