Thank for the Alert, Dustin: When it Comes To ‘Gypsy’ Bette’s Number One


Hi Keith,

I just want to know how many copies the “New Broadway Cast Recording” of “Gypsy” with Bernadette Peters has sold thus far. And which “Gypsy” album has been the most successful to date?

Thanks for responding,


Hi (****),

The Broadway Angel “New Broadway Recording” of “Gypsy” with Bernadette Peters has sold about 9,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album debuted Sept. 6 at No. 175 on The Billboard 200.

Because most of the “Gypsy” related albums pre-date SoundScan’s tracking era (1991-present), we only have a limited amount of sales information. Therefore, all numbers quoted here are for May 1991 to date.

The 1959 original broadway cast recording of “Gypsy,” which starred Ethel Merman, has sold 79,000 copies in the U.S.
