Gypsy

Unfortunately, this is right around the time those new-fangled talkies are killing vaudeville. Also, Rose isn't very talented
It's essential that we fix another oft-overlooked error that's undercut the story for decades: Gypsy is actually about a young gay man's struggle from ignored wallflower to sexy grownup muscle jock. I should know; I lived it.
In terms of musicals, there are two that have opened already this spring, the Roundabout revival of She Loves Me and the jukebox musical Disaster!
Ethel Merman. Angela Lansbury. Bernadette Peters. Patti LuPone. Imelda Staunton. One name, pretty clearly, doesn't belong on that list of larger-than-life musical comedy stars--and, thus, seems an unlikely candidate for the larger-than-life role of Rose in Gypsy. But that distinction is the key to what makes the current West End Gypsy, at the Savoy, so indomitable.
The Roman city of Arles in Provence (South of France) has wonderful happenings throughout the year, but the one event that would make me move there is the summer photography festival -- a sophisticated pictorial feast.
Relations between ethnic Hungarians and ethnic Romanians have improved to a degree. There are still tensions, particularly around the top of regionalization, which would provide greater autonomy to different parts of the country, including the area with a Hungarian majority.
When it comes to Roma, East-Central Europe is still in its segregation era. The business community hasn't really begun to see Roma as consumers because it's too busy worrying about how an association with Roma would adversely affect its image. Istvan Forgacs would like to change that.

New Yorkers expect the best of everything, and recently I had the opportunity to see one of the best: Zoltan Maga, Hungary's most celebrated violin virtuoso, a man who brings Hungarian cultural traditions to the rest of the world.
Jobbik parliamentary representative Tamas Hegedus believes the party did so well because, more than any of the other parties, it spoke directly with voters and not simply through the media. The electoral war between Fidesz and the main opposition coalition also helped Jobbik's numbers.
The Slovak government has had a plan on the books for a couple decades to build a nuclear power plant near Kecerovce. Otherwise, the prospects for economic development in the area are bleak. The village is more than 90 percent Roma.
Celli, who lives by the motto, "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that bling," makes wedding dresses that are NOT for
Without a chance to brush up on my poor speaking or understanding of French, I was whisked away from LA to Montréal, Canada after an invite came into my inbox to attend the 3rd annual world music conference/festival Mundial Montréal.
This is an old tune, arranged perhaps with new words and rhythms to suit a modern audience, but it's the same prejudice-based "judicial" system that seems to dominate our world. And outside the law, are those most guilty the ones most often held accountable?
I have been going to Provence each summer for years now, and I have yet to run out of places to discover. Even when I get lazy and want only to swing in a hammock under a tree, the endless discoveries attract me too much to nap for too long.
Buyer & Cellar, a one-man intermissionless 90-minuter showcasing an extremely adroit Michael Urie, could easily be dismissed as a merely silly time-killer for La Streisand fans. Yet, in a larger sense, it inadvertently implies a reality about the American obsession with fame.
I've been spending time with several gypsy communities in Romania over the last couple of weeks, to see how they feel and think about the world around them.
“Yes, yes, what’s the matter with you?” Olga said. “I need one of her hairs for my spell. That’s all I ask. I’m not an evil
"Our plane got delayed 20 minutes so we got out the instruments," the band wrote on its YouTube page. The jam session was
