 Barbra Streisand in Gypsy


We know plans are underway for a film remake of Gypsy starring the Academy Award-winning Barbra Streisand as Rose, but hearing that million-dollar voice sing one of the musical theatre's greatest scores live would have been a once-in-a-lifetime experience. In her recent concerts, Streisand did offer a glimpse of the breakdown-in-song that is "Rose's Turn" — guess we'll have to wait for the motion picture to hear the rest of her take on the Jule Styne score.
