I'm just curious to know if any of you know or are curious, though it is NOBODY'S much do you think Bernadette makes per performance? Or do they do this on a weekly or yearly pay scale? Does anyone have any idea, thoughts, estimates, etc? I have a friend in a show that is currently running, and she's been in the biz for a while. She says that the leads sometimes get like $7,000.00 per week--and if they're big names that they probably get more. What do you guys think?

There was an article in USA Today a while back discussing this topic. Bernadette was "rumored" to be getting $30,000-35,000 per week to star in Gypsy. I have no idea of the accuracy of this number and the paper even stated "rumored" but this is the best guess I have.

Here is the link to the article:

She does pretty good if that is true. I always wondered how much she made.
