That headline was for my high school friends and anyone else who has seen the musical Gypsy more than a dozen times. Some of those songs are still emblazoned in my brain from the drama club rehearsals over 20 years ago. “You Gotta Have A Gimmick” pops into my head every once in a while, which is highly perturbing, especially lines like, “If you wanna make it, Twinkle while you shake it.” Um, I think I’ll take my marketing advice from elsewhere, thanks.
The May/June 2007 “Rose” theme issue is out and now available by mail order from us. (Details at http://www.washingtongardener.com/.) If you begin your subscription by June 15, we’ll start you off with this issue.
