DAILY DOSE OF DELIGHT #13 (From GYPSY) in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALS Posted June 29, 2018 1. The scene looks back in time to who has the most money and controls what people should enjoy, it is vaudeville. It also looks forward to who the manager or director has a relationship with gets the job or the time on stage. When Rose walks in she takes over saying everything to be in control and get her daughters the main leads. Funny that she becomes romantically involved with Uncle Joko. Rose definitely is building a relationship by saying "Are you an ELK?". The Mom is a total take control and it is all about us. She is also constantly talking and walking around the stage, managing everyone and calling out the problems. We need a spot light on baby June and how the music needs to be played for the entrance. She is a true stage Mother and professional. I just love her walking off the stage following the balloon girl with a fork. The song is vampy and suggests that I am the only one who can entertain. We should be the only ones on stage. When a child sings the song it is playful and fun, with not to dark under tones.
