Gypsy Rose Lee's Former Upstate New York Home For Sale
"Let Me Entertain You" sang the character based on famed burlesque strip-tease artist Gypsy Rose Lee in the classic Broadway musical, GYPSY.
For $1,699,000, you can entertain friends and family Gypsy-style as the Highland Mills, New York home once owned by the great ecdysiast is now on the market.
As described on the website of Ellis Sotheby's International Realty, the 1901 Colonial Revival style home is set on 6.8 acres of land features 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths and 2 partial baths. There's also a full-size swimming pool and a converted barn that can be used as an art studio or guest house.
After making her mark as one of burlesque's most in-demand performers, Gypsy Rose Lee starred in THE ZIEGFELD FOLLIES OF 1936 and even replaced Ethel Merman at the end of the run of DU BARRY WAS A LADY.
It was while she was starring on Broadway in STAR AND GARTER that she gave this very tame performance for the film "Stage Door Canteen," about the World War II Times Square nightclub for military personnel where Broadway's stars would volunteer to entertain and serve meals.
