DVD Synopsis and information:
Based On The Autobiography Of Gypsy Rose Lee
It's Emmy, Grammy and Golden Globe-winner Bette Midler in the role she was born to play. The superstar of Beaches, Ruthless People, Down & Out in Beverly Hills and For the Boys delivers a "standing room only" performance as Mama Rose, the ultimate vaudeville stage mother. Rose's blind ambition for her two daughters forces one to desert her and the other to emerge as the world's most famous striptease artist - Gypsy Rose Lee.
Based on the actual memoirs of Ms. Lee, and directed by the late Emile Ardolino (Sister Act, Dirty Dancing), this musical motion picture extravaganza is true to the original Broadway production...including the glorious Jerome Robbins choreography and the memorable Jule Styne/Stephen Sondheim score. The classics are all here - from "Everything's Coming Up Roses" to "Let Me Entertain You" and as a special bonus, the complete version of Gypsy's classic overture. Spectacular performances by Ms. Midler and her supporting cast - Peter Riegert, Cynthia Gibb (as the legendary Gypsy Rose Lee) and Ed Asner - will leave you asking for an encore!
