I was hoping that a poster for Gypsy with a picture of Bernadette would be available for sale. The window card that I have seen just has the shows credits on it, and in my opinion, it's rather dull.
What it needs is the photo of Bernadette in the purple dress, during Rose's Turn. Has anyone seen this poster for sale? Thanks!!!

Unfortunately, that poster that you are referring to has not gone on sale or even printed... YET!

The only place I have seen that poster was in the huge 1-page ad in the New York times.

Has anyone noticed, though, how the "look" for the show has gone from a solid black color to more purples and pinks? (Like in the handbills that are given out and the marquee itself on the theatre?) With this recent makeover, I wouldn't be surprised to see a new Gypsy poster come out soon.

I hope they have a new poster too. I like the purplish pink with all the other colors. But I still have to buy the black poster.

I bought a poster and had it framed. Her name and the logo look fine on the black, but unless the light is just right and you are standing only a few feet away, you can't see, much less read, the small, red "Curtain Up, Light the Lights." A lot of wasted space, and I don't think dramatic.
I had to have it, though; "Gypsy" was my first Broadway musical seen ON Broadway. (The GYPSY logo on the black T-shirt, however, looks great. Got one of those, too.)

I think the soft purple one with the lights framing it and Ms. Peters in "Rose's Turn" now on the Web site would be a terrific poster (and look dynamite on my wall). Better yet (tho it would have to be horizontal, and I don't know that that's kosher with these theater posters), would be the one that's outside the Shubert with BP in the middle and four scenes from the show around her. That would be memorable (tho probably too busy for that size poster).

I saw the show again on the 12th, and noticed that the Playbill cover carried the GYPSY logo in black-and-white. Could have been a printer's mistake or quickie job, but my guess was that they needed only so many more copies of the Playbill before a new cover (and poster?) is issued, perhaps tied into the publication of a souvenir book and the cast recording (is that the CD cover on the Web site? hmmm). Will see the show again for the third and fourth time in a couple of weeks. I'm really hoping the souvenir book will be for sale by then (gotta get IT signed!!).

Pretty much all show's Playbills are printed in color until a few months into the run when they are then printed in black and white.

I'm not an expert or anything, but I think it's because color is more expensive to print and they like to keep everything vibrant and colorful until the show has been running for awhile.

The New Yorker which came in the mail yesterday has a full page ad for GYPSY with the purple motif, and Peters in the Rose's Turn stance.
