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

What a great evening, and twas a pity that more people weren't there to enjoy it (without Goldstar I wouldn't have been there either!). Mighty Max was a great host, the music and musicians were fantastic. He closed with wonderful jazzy interpretations of Born to Run and Kitty's Back in Town.
Quotes & Highlights
See and hear the Band at Max Weinberg’s website.
Entering what F. Scott Fitzgerald might term the third act of an already celebrated career, Max Weinberg presents the Max Weinberg Big Band. Building upon his seventeen years as the leader of what Tom Shales, famed TV critic of the Washington Post, called “the best band in late night television,” the Max Weinberg Big Band is a bold, swinging fifteen-piece aggregation that continues the traditions established by Max’s musical heroes — among whom Frank Sinatra, Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa, Doc Severinsen, and Maynard Ferguson lead the pack.
