Gypsy isn't just good, The New York Times admitted it "may be the greatest of all American musicals." And Mama Rose wouldn't have it any other way. Only a musical as epic as Gypsy could capture the real-life Rose, the ultimate stage mom, who groomed her two daughters to be vaudeville stars ... only to see one of them leave it all behind to become a burlesque sensation. With a book by Arthur Laurents (West Side Story), music by Jule Styne (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Funny Girl) and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods), the multiple Tony Award winner is the very definition of a "must-see" musical. Enjoy crowd-pleasing classics like "Everything's Coming Up Roses," "Let Me Entertain You," "You Gotta Get a Gimmick" and the show-stopping "Rose's Turn" during this dynamic production directed by Kim Saunders at Sunnyvale Theatre.

What a wonderful surprise! Very impressed with the amazing voices of leads, Carmichael Blankenship and Mary Melnick. I must commend FMT for placing a person of color in the lead role! That is so important to me as a person of color and as an active theater subsciber (SJ Rep, SJ Stage and SF's Best of Broadway).
I wish all theaters would take FMT's lead and have casts which reflect our community!

Quotes & Highlights
In 1999, Time magazine voted Carousel the “Best Musical of the Century.”
The multi-award-winning Foothill Music Theatre presents Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical Carousel. Set in a small New England seaside town, the show follows the love story of Billy Bigelow, a smooth-talking carnival barker, and Julie Jordan, the spunky local factory worker he falls for. Forging new territory in musical theatre storytelling, this lush work from the Golden Era of Broadway features a superbly witty script from Hammerstein and boasts some of Rodgers’ most memorable tunes, including “If I Loved You,” “My Boy Bill,” the gorgeous “Carousel Waltz,” and the showstopping “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
Award-winning director Jay Manley helms this emotionally riveting take on Nicholas Hytner’s 1994 Tony Award-winning revival of the show.
