Broadway’s great talent Barbara Harris is no longer in the CBS-TV movie of “Gypsy” which stars Bette Midler. Harris was to have played Tessie Tura, one of the three strippers who Inspire young Gypsy and tear the place apart with “You Gotta Have a Gimmick.” But as New York theater types know, Harris is one nervous woman. Now she’s out, and Christine Ebersole is in. And that’s show biz!
Linda Hart as Miss Mazeppa, Anna McNeeley as Miss Electra, and Christine Ebersole as Tessie Tura. Louise is Cynthia Gibb.
