Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Gypsy Rose Lee's memoir became a New York Times bestseller in 1957, inspiring the 1959 hit musical, two movies, and three revivals. Now a fourth, directed by Arthur Laurents and starring Patti LuPone, is lighting up New York, winning top Broadway theatre awards, including three 2008 Tony Awards, as well as raves from critics and audiences:
""No matter how long you live, you'll never see a more exciting production." --"Terry Teachout, " The Wall Street Journal "
""Watch out, New York This GYPSY is a wallop-packing show of raw power." --"Ben Brantley, "The New York Times "
""Not your ordinary theater experience. This is the best production of the best damn musical ever." "--Liz Smith, Syndicated Columnist
The memoir, which Gypsy began as a series of pieces for "The New Yorker, "contains photographs and newspaper clippings from her personal scrapbooks and an afterword by her son, Erik Lee Preminger. At turns touching and hilarious, Gypsy describes her childhood trouping across 1920s America through her rise to stardom as The""Queen of Burlesque""in 1930s New York--where gin came in bathtubs, gangsters were celebrities, and Walter Winchell was king.
Gypsy's story features outrageous characters--among them Broadway's funny girl, Fanny Brice, who schooled Gypsy in how to be a star; gangster Waxy Gordon, who fixed her teeth; and her indomitable mother, Rose, who lived by her own version of the Golden Rule: "Do unto others ... before they do you."
