The GYPSY revival with Imelda Staunton cut out all the strings in the orchestra and kept a lot of brass. The strings had softened what is already a musical that tends towards brassiness and shrillness even when the lead perfomance isn't factored in. Orchestra composition and orchestration aren't something I'm usually attuned to in musicals but in that revival I thought it was painfully bad.
