50 Years Ago Today. Gypsy Opens on Broadway

Broadway is remembering one of it's greatest moments. The great musical Gypsy, starring Ethel Merman, opened on Broadway in 1959 tonight.

Gypsy was made into a movie a few years later, in 1962. . In a move that many regret, Ethel's role was given to Rosalind Russell whose voice was a bit- uh- harsh. I found this on You Tube. Someone dubbed Ethel Merman's voice onto Ms. Russell. Gives you an idea of how the original Gypsy must have looked since I could not find a tape of the performance.
