Synopsis: Gypsy is counted among the greatest musical ever written and the Tour de Force role of  Mama Rose has been played by a who’s who of Broadway stars: Ethel Merman, Rosalind Russell, Angela Lansbury, Tyne Daly, Bernadette Peters & Patti LuPone.  Loosely based on the memoirs of the queen of burlesque, Gypsy Rose Lee, GYPSY is the ultimate story about an aggressive stage mother. Join Rose, her daughters June and Louise, and their troupe in their trip across the United States during the 1920’s.  Along the way Rose meets Herbie, a theatrical agent, and hires him as manager. He makes himself father to the troupe as Rose scrimps and schemes for bookings and billings to maintain their hand to mouth existence.  When the headliner of the show June elopes with one of the chorus boys, Rose focuses all her energy on making the shy Louise a star.  Hits include Let Me Entertain You, Some People, You’ll Never Get Away from Me, If Momma Was Married, All I Need Is the Girl, Everything’s Coming Up Roses, You Gotta Get A Gimmick and Together Wherever We Go.
