Gypsy tells the story of the “ultimate stage mother” Rose and her dream to raise her daughters to perform on the vaudeville stage. Mama Rose has become arguably the greatest female role in musical theatre due to its emotion, complexity and powerful songs. Starring Tony and Emmy Award winning actress, Leslie Uggams, and filled with an incredible score by Jule Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, musical theatre lovers will be enthralled by the songs “Some People,” “Rose’s Turn,” “Let Me Entertain You” and, of course, “Everything’s Coming up Roses.” It is no wonder that Gypsy has been called “one of the top contenders for the title of Best Musical Ever” by Terry Teachout in The Wall Street Journal.
