Gypsy has been acclaimed by writers, critics and audiences as the Greatest American Musical. Loosely based on the 1957 memoirs of the famous striptease artist, the show follows the dreams and efforts of her “ultimate stage mother” Rose to raise two daughters on the vaudeville circuit, casting an affectionate eye on the hardships of show business life. This classic backstage story is peppred with popular standards like “Everything’s Coming Up Roses”, “Together (Wherever We Go)”, “Small World” and “Let Me Entertain You”.
