PLAYBILL PICKS: A Dozen Actresses We'd Like to See Play Gypsy Rose Lee in the Barbra Streisand Gypsy
29 Mar 2012
With the news that Academy Award-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes will pen the screen remake of Gypsy, the iconic showbiz musical by Arthur Laurents, Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim, for Barbra Streisand's Rose, the Playbill.com staff would like to suggest a few actresses we believe could play the role of Rose's daughter Louise, the part created on Broadway by Sandra Church and later on film by Natalie Wood.
Here, in no particular order, are a baker's dozen of the many multi-talented performers we think would score in the role of the young, insecure Louise, who eventually becomes the world-famous stripper Gypsy Rose Lee.
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
