Theatre 29's upcoming musical production, "Gypsy," is the story about
the ultimate stage mother. "Gypsy", which opens March 8 for a
five-week run, is based on the memoirs of stripper Gypsy Rose Lee and
follows the story of Mama Rose, a determined stage mother trying to
make her two young daughters famous during the 1920s, the era of
vaudeville and burlesque. "Gypsy" has been called "The greatest
American musical" by numerous critics and writers.
The classic Broadway musical, directed by Gary Daigneault with
musical direction by Ed Will and Choreography by Mandi Pushkar,
features Jule Styne's music and Stephen Sondheim's lyrics including
the hits "Let Me Entertain You," "Some People," "You'll Never Get
Away from Me," "If Momma Was Married," "All I Need Is the Girl,"
"Everything's Coming Up Roses," "You Gotta Get A Gimmick" and
"Together Wherever We Go."
The show has some mature themes and is not recommended for children
under 12. "Gypsy" will run for twelve performances over five weekends
from March 8, though April 6. Performances are at 7:00 pm on Friday
