A friend of mine, who loved what Ms. LuPone did in "Rose's Turn," pointed out: "And when the song is over, we the audience are incorporated into her fantasy, as she bows over and over, exulting in the adoration from the audience that, in the context of the story, only exist inside her own delusional mind." I hope to get the chance to see for myself, but meanwhile I'm sending him the link to this interview.

I went to see Gypsy last month. Patti, I have been a fan since I was a girl, and I used to watch you as Libby on Life Goes On.

You are a joy to watch. Seeing you play a role that you clearly have such rapport with...and with such a humorous, talented was just a great, unforgettable experience.

So, thank you.
