COUNTERPUNCH LETTERS : Defending 'Gypsy'

January 10, 1994

I'm writing in regard to the Joe Baltake Counterpunch, "There's Nothing Wrong With '62 'Gypsy' " (Dec. 27). At last, the voice of reason! When I heard that my favorite musical, "Gypsy," was being remade for television, I was very excited--initially. For the next few weeks, I was bombarded by articles about this remake that seemed more intent on tearing down the 1962 Rosalind Russell film than shedding any light on the new show. By the time the show aired, I found myself watching the remake in a very defensive mood.

It would have been lovely to sit back and enjoy yet another interpretation of a wonderful musical. Instead, I felt compelled to come to the defense of an old friend.
