Video: Together (Wherever We Go) - Bette Midler - Gypsy (1993) HD

Midler won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Miniseries or Television Film. Gibb was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress – Series, Miniseries or Television Film and the production was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Miniseries or Television Film.

The film was nominated for 12 Primetime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Made for Television Movie and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie for Midler, and won for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Music Direction (Michael Rafter). Midler lost, in a big surprize, to Kirstie Alley in a Lifetime movie. Kirstie was good, but in no way did it approach the greatness of Midler’s performance. Read More

How Producer Craig Zadan Got Bette Midler To Star In Gypsy

Variety
Neil Meron on Craig Zadan: ‘He Had a Singular Passion for Producing’
By CYNTHIA LITTLETON
AUGUST 23, 2018 

Producer Craig Zadan with Bette Midler on the set of ‘Gypsy’

Zadan was also tenacious, in a charming way. It took many phone calls to Bette Midler to convince her to star in Zadan and Meron’s 1993 production of “Gypsy” for CBS – the show that Zadan and Meron considered to be the “Mount Olympus” of Broadway efforts. One night Zadan reached Midler after she had just come out of a sauna, Meron recalled. “He said to Bette, ‘Is this not the greatest role in theater for a woman?’ And she said ‘Yes.’ He said ‘Is this not the greatest musical of all-time?’ And she said ‘Yes.’ And he said ‘Well, what’s your problem?’ ” When Midler finally relented, Zadan hung up quickly so as to not give her time to back out, Meron said.

On The Ethel Merman Legacy Of Gypsy:

Bette Midler On The Ethel Merman Legacy Of Gypsy: ” I felt the ghost of Ethel was definitely hovering over me. And I didn’t want to listen to it because I didn’t want to be affected by that voice when I was making my own way through the songs. Still, I did feel her performance was one of those performances that are considered legendary. . . .” (1993)

Why Barbra Streisand Should Reconsider Starring in ‘Gypsy’

Forward
Why Barbra Streisand Should Reconsider Starring in ‘Gypsy’
By Benjamin Ivry
June 5, 2016

Just because Barbra can do something does not mean that Barbra should do it. The recent news that long-percolating plans for Streisand to star in a film of the Jule Styne musical “Gypsy” will occur has thrilled millions of fans. Not long ago, Barry Levinson shepherded the volcanic Al Pacino through two monstrous TV film roles, directing him as “Dr. Death” Jack Kevorkian and producing “Phil Spector,” . If anyone can handle Streisand’s adamant perfectionism, the director Levinson surely can. Read More

Broadway.com Challenge! Rank Your Top 10 Favorite Roses in Gypsy (Let’s Make Bette Number One!)

2444081,kbAjQ2AVf2rYpUKme42Sv4p5RZ5tEmm90NM5dkbf0Rr7Y6ndrWVt3TSkakTsbdK0YDjzV1xJTYwtQa_3w1eR_w==

The Broadway.com staff is crazy for Culturalist, the website that lets you choose and create your own top 10 lists. Every week, we’re challenging you with a new Broadway-themed topic to rank.

Here she is, boys! Here she is, world! Now the question is: which one is your favorite? Gypsy opened on May 21,1959 at the Broadway Theatre, and 57 years later, there have been five Main Stem revivals, two film adaptations (three if you count the taped West End revival) and the possibility of a third starring Barbra Streisand. Audiences still beg Arthur Laurents, Stephen Sondheim and Jule Styne’s tuner to entertain them, and that is in part due to the brassy, bossy, bombastic role of Rose. Angela Lansbury, Tyne Daly and Patti LuPone have taken home Tonys for playing the iconic character, and Imelda Staunton nabbed an Olivier Award for leading 2015’s West End revival. Rosalind Russell and Bette Midler have portrayed her onscreen, and of course, we cannot forget Ethel Merman’s original take on the relentlessly ambitious stage mother. So which Rose performance can you truly never get away from? Everything’s coming up Roses, and Broadway.com News Reporter Ryan McPhee kicked off this challenge with his top 10! Read More
