Gypsy • The mother of all musicals
August 3 – 20, 2017
Based on the 1957 memoirs of world-famous striptease artist Gypsy Rose Lee, Gypsy begins at the end of the vaudeville era as overbearing stage mother Rose carts young daughters June and Louise (the young Lee) throughout the country, performing in fading venues for dwindling audiences. Rose’s desperate desire for fame soon pushes the family to its limits, unraveling relationships, unveiling a new star, and revealing the raw power of ambition laid bare.
With six Broadway productions and two film adaptations, Gypsy has transfixed and astounded audiences for generations, holding its place among the greatest of all American musicals.
Starring Broadway Rose co-founders SHARON MARONEY (Mama Rose) and DAN MURPHY (Herbie).
