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.

Quotes & Highlights
To get into the spirit of the silent film era of Hollywood, the cast and crew visited the Silent Movie Museum in Niles and took a trip to see Jason Graae’s cabaret performance at the Rrazz Room in San Francisco that saluted composer Jerry Herman’s 80th birthday.
This romantic tale of the silent film era tells the story of legendary director Mack Sennett (best known for his Keystone Kops_) and his greatest star, the adorable Mabel Normand. It features a musical score by Jerry Herman (_Hello, Dolly!, Mame) that is considered one of his very best. Set in an early 20th-century movie studio, this delightful, intelligent musical captures the spirit of an exciting time when this new, creative industry was springing to life, with scenes that range from madcap comedy to frolicking bathing beauties to intimate romance. Don’t miss this rarely-performed musical gem!
