Laura Benanti in Gypsy.
"She brought that character to life in every way. I saw the progress of that character in every way; she was perfection (and Patti LuPone's amazing portrayal was the ideal complement). Laura, as Louise, managed to be plain somehow and then the most gorgeous, strong, angry and sexual creature. Her famous striptease performance was such a declaration of self. It was so full of meaning and humanity. Laura rocked my world."
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
