2008, 04:47:14 AM When I bring friends to see PATTI LUPONE GYPSY, they are strictly warned not to initiate any conversation with me at the end of either act because I need time to "come down" from the brilliance of Patti's performance.
When I saw it, I went to Sardi's afterwards with my sister. She asked me what I thought of it. I just stared at her blankly, because I literally couldn't get words out of my mouth.
With that said, I'm loving this recording! I kind of hate "Smile, Girls" but
No, you guys are probably right. It's my own fault, because I just kept thinking "Queenie from The Wild Party" while she was singing. Haha. But she was fantastic.
I have to agree about Kari Yancy as The Mistress. That song was probably the highlight of the first act for me.
Me too. And I brought my sister, who knew nothing about E

I saw it last night, and loved it! I agree with everyone in that Julia's second act was very strong. Her "Don't Cry For Me..." almost brought tears to my eyes [Ha, I just realized how ironic that sentence was]. I would have liked a little accent, but eh. She made up for it. Her acting was spot-on, as well.
I also really enjoyed Kari Yancy, the Mistress. I thought that whole scene was staged so beautifully.
Overall, wonderful. Very sad now that it's closed. :[
