Gypsy - 1998, Paper Mill Playhouse, New Jersey

One of the best reviewed performances of "Rose" ever. Then Betty Buckley -- yes, here's Rose, a revelatory Rose -- makes the character's classic down-the-aisle entrance, and real good times are no longer here to stay. For she will seize your heart, warm it and then break it. From "When a Rose Is a Rose Is a Rose Indeed" By ALVIN KLEIN, New York Times, Published: September 20, 1998

Interesting. I saw this production and was floored by Betty Buckley. She brought a depth to Mama Rose that was heartbreaking. The rumor is Sondhein and Laurents did not like it. Is this true?
