Having seen the 2003 revival of this mammoth show with Bernadette Peters at the Shubert Theater in New York, after listening to Peters's rendition, as well as other "Gypsy" recordings, Miss Angela Lansbury, I have to say, along with Miss Peters's version, are the 2 best Roses I have ever heard. Not to bash Ethel Merman, Rosalind Russell, Bette Midler or Tyne Daly fans, but Lansbury has captured some of the more psychological nuances of the monster who is, as Arthur Laurents put in his liner notes in the Peters disc, "a monster sweetly named Rose". Angela sings with gusto and a psychoticness that borders among the pathetic, irrational, and superhuman force of will. Whereas Merman was a voice, and Midler and Daly straightforward characterizations (their singing wasn't the best for songs like "Rose's Turn" or "Everything's Coming Up Roses") Angela Lansbury's got the gimmick, but gimmick it ain't...she really is Rose...and glad she's gotten her turn!
