The 2008 revival of Stephen Sondheim, Arthur Laurents and Jule Styne's iconic musical Gypsy took its final bow on Broadway Jan. 11, 2009. Here, we take a look at various divas who took on the first-act finale, "Everything's Coming Up Roses."

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, Playbill.com offers a handful of performances from Gypsy.
