GYPSY
at City Center,New York

OUT OF A SUITCASE
By Roger B. Harris
Published May 21 2007

  Boyd Gaines

According to informed sources, newly-minted Drama Desk Award winner Boyd Gaines, will be playing Herbie in the upcoming City Center Encores! Summer Stars production of Gypsy. The show will play the month of July, specifically, July 9-29, with a July 14 opening. Patti LuPone will play--the ultimate stage mom--Mama Rose.

Gypsy has music by Julie Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The book is by Arthur Laurents, who will be directing the new production. The musical is based on the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee.

Gaines was the winner last night( May 20), of the Drama Desk Award for Best Featured Actor in a Play, namely Journey's End. He's been nominated for the Tony Award for Best Actor for that same performance. The Tony Award ceremony will be held on June 10, at Radio City Music Hall.

Gypsy had its Broadway premiere on May 21, 1959, at the Broadway Theatre. It starred Ethel Merman as Mama Rose, Jack Klugman as Herbie, Jacqueline Mayo as Baby June, Karen Moore as Baby Louise and Sandra Church as Louise( aka Gypsy Rose Lee). The show, argueably, one of the best musicals of all time, closed on March 25, 1961, after 702 performances.
