So Jo and I were talking and we decided that you can tell a lot about a person by who their favorite Mama Rose is. I might expand upon this later, but here’s a short summary:
Ethel Merman: You’re a theatre purist, you’d be hard-pressed to find an NBCR that you think is remotely comparable to the OBCR. You sympathize the best with Rose’s character, you sometimes find yourself putting on a much bigger persona to cover up your insecurities.You’re a people person through and through, you love to make people happy.
Angela Lansbury: You’ve probably worked in theatre for a long time, and you’re somewhat jaded by it. You might have had a stage mother yourself in your childhood.You’re a hard worker and you commit to everything 100%, you don’t do things by halves.
Tyne Daly: You are most likely a liar, or worse - a theatre hipster.
Bernadette Peters: You have innumerable insecurities which haunt you on a day-to-day basis. You wish you could let someone else shoulder the burden for a while, but the mere thought of that makes you even more stressed. You’re a romantic at heart and you have a very warm outward personality.
Patti LuPone: You enjoy the thrill of living vicariously through others. You love excitement and you can sometimes make rash decisions. You make mistakes and are okay with this, though you have a hard time learning from them. You feel like not many people understand you, and you’re okay with that (most of the time).

Note: Based off quick research done of the date displayed on this recording, not to mention my initial guess of the voice you can briefly hear at the end of the clip, the show credit should be correct — but I apologize if it isn’t.
Would this be the performance that during which she was spotted, ultimately leading to her nabbing the role of Nancy in the Oliver! movie?
“Bedroom Sets” lol
She’s somewhat charming on this number.
