MD Poll: Harvey, Call Your Agent

It looks like Harvey Fierstein should be hitting the boards in drag again as Gypsy's Momma Rose, at least as far as Movie Dearest readers are concerned. Our hero Harvey (who won a Tony Award for portraying another larger-than-life show biz mom in Hairspray) netted almost a third of the votes in the latest MD Poll, easily besting all the actual actresses in the running.

See the comments section below for the full rundown, including which quartet of A-list divas tied for second and third place.

And in more Gypsy-related news, read all about how the exiting Momma Rose, Miss Patti LuPone, literally stopped the show (again) at the revival's penultimate performance over at our pal Deep Dish's blog. And you can actually hear the whole thing (copyright infringement be damned) on the YouTubes. Harvey, you got a tough act to follow ...

UPDATE: It was inevitable: the "dance mix".
