Patti LuPone singing her last Rose’s Turn during the closing night of the last Broadway revival of Gypsy [11.01.2009].
I included the monologue before the song because her performance during the whole show, and particularly in this scene, is a true acting masterclass.
Okay can we take a second to appreciate this gif
I mean, on the right there’re these Gladers who just look a little astonished and move slightly back.
Then there’s Thoms and Gally who couldn’t give less of a shuck
AND THEN THERE’S Frypan just freaking out like
"Holy mother of Grievers back away it’s a GIRL"

The girl could’ve been nicer. But then again, when I met him I ugly cried and I was like “HUG ME PLEASE” so yeah
"Augustus is soooo pretentious!!!"

"Augustus Waters talked so much that he’d interrupt you at his own funeral. And he was pretentious: Sweet Jesus Christ, that kid never took a piss without pondering the abundant metaphorical resonances of human waste production."
“I remember Audra McDonald, coming back stage and saying “make sure when you warm up…” and I remember her putting her hands around my diaphragm and saying I want you to take a deep breath in and she would teach me how to extend my diaphragm and tell me what scales to do. Peter Friedman taught me about being on time, and being ready for your cue and how to behave on stage. And Marin taught me how to have fun and she taught me how to laugh and to not be so hard on yourself. All those little things were my lessons and I got them without taking singing lessons, acting lessons – those were my teachers and I owe everything to them. That was Ragtime for me.”
