Come and see why this show is considered one of the greatest musicals of all time. Set during the vaudeville era, a relentless stage mother, Rose, travels the country with her two daughters, June and Louise, as she drives them into show business and keeps their noses to the grindstone until one of them is a star on the vaudeville circuit. June deserts the act so Rose turns her attention to the shy Louise. When the act is booked into a burlesque house by mistake, Louise is forced into the spotlight and Gypsy Rose Lee is born. Suggested by the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, this legendary musical features music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, including the delightful “Let Me Entertain You,” and “Small World,” leading up to the showstopper “Everything’s Coming Up Roses.”
