Required Listening – Gypsy

To kick off 2018, Antonia Gentile has chosen the overture from Gypsy (1959) by Jule Styne: 

“Could there be a more perfect way to begin the year than with an overture? Specifically the overture from Gypsy – one of the best musical theatre overtures ever written. 

I have chosen the overture from the 2008 Broadway Revival of Gypsy, as you get the benefit of the string section – something which is missing from the 2015 West End Revival recording.”

Let us know which Musical Theatre overture you would choose in the comments below!
