Bernadette Peters & Company of 2003 Broadway Revival of Gypsy Toast 20 Years

July 12th, 2023 | By Staff

Together, wherever they go! Back in 2003, one of the hottest tickets in town was the Sam Mendes-directed revival of the classic musical Gypsy. At its center was a must-see turn from Broadway icon Bernadette Peters as Rose, who helped fill the Shubert Theatre for a year-long run, clocking in 451 performances. On July 9, Peters and members of the revival’s company—including leading man John Dossett (Herbie) and featured standouts Brooks Ashmanskas (Mr. Goldstone/Pastey), Kate Buddeke (Mazeppa), David Burtka (Tulsa), Julie Halston (Miss Cratchett/Electra), Heather Lee (Tessie Tura), Michael McCormick (Uncle Jocko) and Kate Reinders (June) gathered at a cast member’s home for a private party toasting the anniversary. The bash was hosted by cast members Ben Cohen, Halston, Lee and Tim Federle, along with stage manager Richard Hester, and we’ve got exclusive shots of the merriment. Photos by Andy Henderson for
