GypsyOriginal 1959 Broadway Cast Recording
Ethel Mermen (1908–1984) used to be famous for doing to perfectly innocent songs what some of our more studly porn stars are famous for doing to a certain area of the male anatomy — and almost always without protection of a condom. If you need convincing, check out the new 50th anniversary edition of the 1959 Broadway smash Gypsy, starring Mermen as stripper Gypsy Rose Lee’s unforgettable Momma Rose. Included with the new edition are bonus songs and a 1959 interview with Gypsy Rose Lee. — Review: Jack Varsi
