Description
"A powerhouse, all-systems-are-go performance," wrote the New York Times of Bette Midler as Mama Rose in this TV production of Gypsy. They and scores of critics agreed that Midler had triumphed in making the role her own, showing emotional range and poetry on the more sentiment-laden numbers like "Small World," "You'll Never Get Away From Me," and "Together, Wherever We Go" and belting to beat the band on show-stoppers like "Some People" and "Everything's Coming Up Roses." This show has so many magnificent and varied numbers for the rest of the cast too—including "Little Lamb," "You Gotta Get a Gimmick," "All I Need Is the Girl" and "If Momma Was Married"—that it's impossible to tire of it.

"Alternating between brassy defiance and whispering sadness in 'Rose's Turn,' Midler effectively conveys not only the abrasive side of Mama Rose's personality, but evokes sympathy for the stage mother-from-hell. For that Midler deserves both an Emmy and a Grammy."—The Record, NJ

"Midler's Rose exudes enough brass to satisfy the most demanding of Merman fans…. By the time she gets to 'Rose's Turn,' the show's powerfully bitter finale, Miss Midler has made Rose her very own. The audience can't help but agree with Louise, now a star as Gypsy Rose Lee, when she tells Mama, 'You really would've been something'."—New York Times
