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
“Filled with laughter and warmth and sweetness and inspired daffiness.” —New York Daily News
A coming-of-middle-age story revolving around eccentric bachelor Murray Burns, an unemployed children’s television writer who has found himself raising his sister’s son after she went out for a pack of cigarettes and never returned. When social workers from the Bureau of Child Welfare come to investigate whether his nephew is receiving a proper upbringing, finding an actual paying job becomes high priority so Murray can keep the precocious 12-year-old. A return to his former work involves writing for “Chuckles the Chipmunk,” an inane character if ever there was one! Full of quotable dialogue and quirky charm, A Thousand Clowns speaks to us of commitment and the power of love.
