Based on the 1957 Memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee
September 8 - 24
One of the greatest Broadway musicals of all time, Gypsy and its phenomenal Overture is recognizable to all theatre fans. The show is loosely based on the 1957 memoirs of burlesque artist Gypsy Rose Lee, Gypsy tells the story of the dreams and efforts of one hungry, powerhouse of a woman to get her two daughters into show business. The memoir and the musical focus on the story of Gypsy Rose Lee’s mother, Rose, and earned Rose a place in the theatrical and literary canon as the quintessential, archetypal “Stage Mother.” The musical features songs that have become standards of the musical theatre canon, including “Some People,” “Let Me Entertain You,” “Rose’s Turn,” and the show-stopping, “Everything’s Coming Up Roses”.
