Gypsy

Widely considered one of the best musicals ever written, Gypsy tells the story of the domineering Mama Rose, who pressures her daughters to succeed in the dying world of vaudeville. Rose pushes her “talented” daughter June to be the toast of the town, but her push for success leads to dire consequences. Her ambition leads to a schism in the family, and Rose sets her sights on her younger, “plainer” daughter Louise. Rose’s plans take her younger daughter down a path she never expected: the tawdry world of burlesque! Gypsy is beloved of the theatre-goers everywhere and the winner of six Tony Awards over its 55-year-old history, resulting in five Broadway productions. Featuring beloved hits like “All I Need Now is the Girl,” “Small World,” and “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” Gypsy is classic Broadway at its best!
