Bold, brassy and remarkably charming, Gypsy's Momma Rose puts today's Dance Moms to shame. The ultimate stage mom, Mama Rose grooms her two daughters to be stars on the waning 1920s vaudeville circuit, only to see one of them leave her behind to become a burlesque sensation. With a book by Arthur Laurents (West Side Story, Hallelujah, Baby!), music by Jule Styne (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Funny Girl) and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), the Tony Award-winning Gypsy is a must-see musical. Just try and resist 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." Learn More

Jon was in excellent voice. He was comfortable, charming and fallible (forgetting some chords here and there). It was a real treat to hear so many songs, so many classic songs of my musical awakening, as they sounded when originally composed before they were further refined and developed by the band. The process that Jon referred to as [the sausage] making of 'YES music'.
The 700 seats in the McGuire theatre provided a superb acoustic environment and an intimate and comfortable place for an artist and 600 fans.
He played for over 90 minutes and told some 'wonderous stories'.
Jon Anderson is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable voices in progressive rock as the lead vocalist and creative force behind Yes. Anderson was the author and a major creative influence behind the series of epics produced by Yes and his role in creating such complex pieces as Close to the Edge, Awaken, and especially The Gates of Delirium, which was central to the band’s success. Additionally, Anderson co-authored the group’s biggest hits, including I’ve Seen All Good People, Roundabout, and Owner Of A Lonely Heart. The accomplished solo artist and composer Jon Anderson brings his solo show to the Guthrie which will include many classic songs from all across the Yes songbook and his own eclectic solo work.
