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.

Make sure you print out your ticket confirmation, so you will be waved through. Otherwise , you will need to stop and have your purchase confirmed. Although I understand the need to "reserve" seats for the lobby volunteers in this general seating theatre, choosing less conspicuous seats would be a better option.Monty Python's Spamalot info • Aug 11 2014 star this tip starred

“The extremity is the point."_
Peter Shaffer’s epic play, Equus, follows child psychiatrist Dr. Martin Dysart in his investigation of the curious case of a young boy who has violently blinded six horses. To Dysart, it is a psychological puzzle, one that brings to light his patient’s sexual/religious fascination with “Equus” and ultimately leads to a perplexing and dramatic confrontation.
Shaffer is an important modern playwright who was born in England in 1926. He has received numerous awards for his work. Some of his other prominent plays include Amadeus, and Five Finger Exercise. _Amadeus and Equus_ were adapted to screenplays in 1977 and 1984 respectively._ Amadeus won the 1984 Best Screenplay Golden Globe and the 1984 Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar. Peter Shaffer was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2001.
