About the Event

“The Greatest of all American Musicals”—The New York Times Start to finish, Gypsy never lets up. From the first trumpet blast to the last hot spotlight, this musical legend packs a wallop. Theater giants Arthur Laurents, Jule Styne, Stephen Sondheim, and Jerome Robbins combined forces to trace the glitzy showbiz rise of two daughters, fueled by an overbearing, ambitious stage mother, Rose, whose larger-than-life dreams turned them into stars. Big, brassy, energetic, heart-touching, funny, and memorable, Gypsy reaffirms America's love of good old-fashioned entertainment with songs like “Let Me Entertain You,” “Some People,” “You Gotta Have a Gimmick,” and “Everything's Coming Up Roses.” Everyone agrees—Broadway musicals don't get much better than Gypsy!
