Synopsis:  GYPSY is a classic American musical based on the memoir of legendary striptease artist, Gypsy Rose Lee.

The musical follows the story of Mama Rose, a domineering stage mother desperate to make her two daughters, June and Louise, child stars in show business.

Unfortunately, their child vaudeville act fades as vaudeville dies.  When the oldest daughter and star of the act, June, leaves the act to make her fortune in Hollywood, the shy and inverted younger daughter transforms herself into a stage legend of Burlesque, Miss Gypsy Rose Lee!

The musical features songs by the legendary team of Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim and made famous by Ethel Merman, Patti Lupone, Natalie Wood, and Laura Benanti: “Let Me Entertain You,” “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “Together,” “You’ll Never Get Away From Me,” and the showstopper, “Rose’s Turn.”
