So I was visiting New York again this week, and decided to check out GYPSY and see if there were any differences from when I saw it last June. The show has really grown since last year! Tammy was out, but her understudy Ginifer King was awesome! She did Louise as the fragile, forgotten daughter so well during the first part...I wasn't sure she'd be able to pull off the strip (that's always my fear - you usually get one or the other). But WOWIE, talk about beautiful and talented. She blew the lid off it! Who is this person? Her bio says she's done stuff in Chicago...does anyone know if she's done any other big stuff?

Ginifer was great. Her strip was incredible---she connects with the audience so well!! And Bernadette gave her a little plug at the end of the curtain call when she made her pitch about BC/EFA.

Isn't she wonderful? I agree with you on the strip...blew me away -- she seemed so at ease with everything. How great was the scene in Gypsy's dressing room? The tension and intensity between her and Rose was what I thought was incredible. I loved that scene. I would love to see her on again...

I don't know anything about her, but I saw her in November and thought she was excellent. When I saw Gypsy in late summer I had seen Tammy Blanchard, but while she was good she just didn't seem comfortable in the role yet. I thought Ginifer seemed much more at ease. I then saw Tammy again in February and thought she had really grown into the role.

PAfan I saw Gypsy in late summer and in February too. Isn't it amazing how everyone really grew into their roles. I loved the lines they added during Together Wherever We Go and how they changed the staging in some scenes.

What lines did you think were added?

After "We blew it together" they sang "We go in a group, we tour in a troupe, we land in the soup but we know: The things we do, we do by threes a perfect team no this way Louise". (I have the script in front of me.)

I think that's always been in the song. It's not on the cd, and I have a script in front of me too and it's in there but it's wierd cause my script doesn't have when they say the tomato sauce goes great with chow mein. I don't know maybe you have a different version. Does your script have the tomato sauce line?

hey--I was in Gypsy this summer and we used those lyrics as well. They are from the Angela Lansbury version and it was really funny to see that we coincidentally did the same thing as the Bway revival!

I don't have the tomato sauce thing in my script. I think (but I'm just guessing) that when I saw Gypsy in August they had replaced the original lines for the tomato sauce. Then at the end of the song they added the lines that were originally written in the script.

I'm pretty sure nothing was changed/cut in the script at all during the coarse of the revival...but I have ways of checking and will let you know.

Chip your probably right. I might just not remember that part. I was a little out of it the first time I saw Gypsy because I saw it the night after that blackout all over the eastcoast.

Hi, my daugher had the same vocal instructor as Ginifer (Grace Marra) here in Michigan. She was always awesomely talented, and it's nice to see that she "made it" to Broadway. My favorite role of hers here was as Ado Annie in "Oklahoma" right after high school. In Chicago she lived with two other kids from Midland, Michigan-one of whom (Ryan Lanning) just won a Jeff Award there for "Spider Woman." From my understanding, they all had day jobs and started doing commercials and whatever stage work they could find. Ginifer hasn't been in NYC that long, but she has been continually working. Go girl!
