It's On! Gypsy Remake Starring Barbra Streisand Is Happening!

babs-gypsy-happening.jpg

And the world makes sense again.

First, it was happening. Then, things went awry. Then, people thought it might happen. Then … radio silence. For almost an ENTIRE YEAR, we have been waiting with bated breath to know if Barbra Streisand would indeed revive the role of Momma Rose in the acclaimed Stephen Sondheim musical Gypsy for the big screen. We prayed to the musical gods in the heavens above, pleading that Barbra would make this movie, which would be her first musical since Yentil almost 30 years ago.

Today, according to the fine people over at Universal Studios, our prayers have been answer. Gypsy IS happening … and all we can say is:

Barbra Streisand Remembers Broadway Director/Writer Arthur Laurents

barbra-streisand-remembers-arthur-laurents.jpg

Barbra Streisand was very close to Broadway writer and director Arthur Laurents.

The two worked on The Way We Were and she was going to collaborate with him again on the new film version of Gypsy.

This is what she has to say about her memories with Laurents:

"Arthur and I go way back to I Can Get It For You Wholesale in 1962. Then we did The Way We Were in 1973 and we were about to do Gypsy together. He created people you care about because he cared about people. I spoke to him a few weeks ago and he sounded so strong, as always. He was lucky to have lived a full and creative life up til the very end. I’ll miss working with him again."

So touching. We're sure it was very hard for her to hear about his passing.

His work of art will always be remembered.

Sorry Barbra! Gypsy Movie Called Off

barbra-streisand-gypsy-movie-scrapped.jpg

NOOOO!!

The film adaptation of the Broadway musical Gypsy has been scrapped.

The film was to star Barbra Streisand in the role of Mama Rose.

Director Arthur Laurents was convinced that Barbra would be great, however, co-creator Stephen Sondheim had decided against the project.

Sad face.

Laurents said:

"'He said 'What is the point of it? You want a record because the theater is ephemeral. You don't need a record. The fact that it's ephemeral means you can have different productions, different Roses on to infinity.'

So I don't want it now. I don't want a definitive record, I want it to stay alive."

He added:

"I think [Barbra Streisand] is disappointed, she wanted very much to do it. That would have been a good exit for her career."

Barbra would have GREAT and we would have loved to have seen the film adaptation with her in it, but we definitely think she has many more years before her career is over!

With Barbra's magic touch, the movie would have been gold. Oh well.
