Synopsis

We are proud to present one of the greatest musicals of all time, featuring one of its most iconic characters. Gypsy is the story of Rose, an ambitious Seattle widow, who lives out her own thwarted dreams through her two daughters, June and Louise, guiding them on a bumpy road across the American showbiz landscape of the 1920’s. Their timing couldn’t be worse as they experience the death of vaudeville and the birth of burlesque, where shy Louise transforms into world-famous stripper Gypsy Rose Lee. Featuring one of the most celebrated scores in musical theatre history, including Let Me Entertain You, Together Wherever We Go, Some People, and Everything’s Coming Up Roses. Join us for this classic show, full of humor and heart. Directed by Brad Friedman, musical direction by Til Tribuzi, choreography by Robyn Tribuzi.
