Customer Reviews for Gypsy
July 16, 2011
This book is true to the original productions with complete renditions. If you want the original complete version, I'd get this book. We used it for "Everything is Coming Up Roses" and the written score went perfectly with the karaoke version.

Original Gypsy Vocal Selections - very nice
This book contains every hit song in the show from the original Broadway version starring Ethel Merman. The songs are incredibly fun to sing and great for a low belter. (alto or mezzo soprano) I would suggest listening to the 2008 Gypsy soundtrack starring Patti LuPone to get an idea of how the songs should be sung. I used 16 bars of "You'll Never Get Away From Me" for 2 auditions and it went very well. I would suggest buying this book; its chock-full of musical theatre gems.
