"Here she is, boys! Here she is, world! Here's Rose!" — over a dozen of them! We take a look back at the divas who took on the second-act, show-stopping ballad "Rose's Turn" to celebrate the 55th anniversary of Gypsy's opening night on Broadway.

From Ethel Merman, who originated the role of Rose in the 1959 Broadway production of Gypsy and received a Tony nomination for her performance, to Patti LuPone, Broadway's most recent Rose, who took home the 2008 Tony for her turn, offers a dozen performances from Gypsy.
