One quick look as each of them leaves you
All your life and what does it get you?
“Thanks a lot — and out with the garbage”

They take bows and you’re batting zero

This is the real Gypsy Rose Lee during her career. I kind of like her costume.

pactressia:

Aurélie Dupont, in La Sylphide.

Did you know that in real life June Havoc (the person Dainty June is based off of) could dance on pointe at the ago of 2? June and Louise did not really have the best sister relationship, but they got better at it. As portrayed in the show, June did run away with a boy in the act, but she actually did things with her life. She’s actually pretty interesting. She’s on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 
**Note**This is not June in the picture…I just wanted to reblog this gif because how awesome is that??

"Some People" through the years

I know I said that I wasn’t going to put up more videos today, but I found this amazing one. It’s “Some People,” but some blessed soul put together a bunch of different clips of a bunch of people who played Mama Rose (as well as some people that didn’t ever actually play Mama) singing it. It’s pretty amazing actually. Don’t worry, I’ll post more videos.
