BetteBack May 11, 1992: Tyne Daly Angry Over Casting Of Midler In ‘Gypsy’

Madison Wisconsin State Journal May 11, 1992 5-18-2015 2-26-20 PM Tyne Daly, who won a Tony award for her performance as Mama Rose in the Broadway hit revival of “Gypsy,” said CBS’s decision to cast Bette Midler in the musical’s TV version caught her by surprise. “I feel like I’ve been punched in the face,” Daly said in the current issue of TV Guide. Daly was a Broadway smash in the musical based on the true story of the ultimate stage mother and her daughter-stripper, Gypsy Rose Lee. “I read about the decision in the papers like everybody else,” Daly said. “Midler is a great power and a great entity, but there’s a bigger and larger power moderating here and it’s called money.”
