Patti LuPone: Pure Magic II

This is an even better video of the final curtain call of Gypsy (a very big shout out to Stephen van Gorden for telling me about it!).

The two things to watch for come at 1:58, and from 2:30 onward.

When Sondheim and Laurents hug...well, I've watched that moment three times and I'm still teary. And watch the way they turn around, almost as if choreographed (maybe by Jerry Robbins from the grave?).

What a great thing Sondheim does, too, at 3:10, saluting the incomparable Jule Styne.
