Photo Coverage: 'Gypsy' 2008 Original Cast CD Signing at Barnes & Noble

On Thursday August 28th Barnes and Noble at Lincoln Triangle hosted Tony and Olivier Award-winning Patti LuPone, four-time Tony Award-winner Boyd Gaines and Tony Award-winner Laura Benanti for a CD signing with additional members of the Gypsy cast and multiple Grammy nominated producer Robert Sher. The signing directly followed a Q&A.

The event was a celebration of the August 26th release of the Gypsy cast recording from Time Life.
                      
This new and most complete Gypsy recording features never-before-recorded songs that were cut from the original Broadway production including "Three Wishes for Christmas," "Mama's Talkin' Soft," "Nice She Ain't," "Mother's Day," "Smile, Girls," "Who Needs Him?," and an alternate version of "Mother's Day."  Additionally, award-winning Broadway and Hollywood orchestrator Jonathan Tunick created new orchestrations for the additional musical numbers.

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 winning legend 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.”

The smash hit new production of Gypsy opened to rave reviews. Ben Brantley of the New York Times exclaimed “Watch out New York! This Gypsy is a wallop-packing show of raw power!” while Liz Smith of the New York Post declared the show to be the “best production of the best damned musical ever!” and David Rooney of Variety said “Patti LuPone’s Gypsy is one for the history books.”

Tickets for Gypsy are $117.00 - $42.00 and are available through Telecharge at (212) 239-6200 or www.telecharge.com or by visiting the St. James Theatre box office. Premium seating is available. Performances are Tuesday through Saturday at 8 p.m., Wednesday and Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m.
