Why See Gypsy?
A musical classic on stage!
Considered one of the greatest musicals ever written, Gypsy is a heart-wrenching portrait of ambition tearing apart a mother and daughter forever. Set in depression-era America, the story centers on the indomitable matriarch Momma Rose, who pressures her daughter Louise into performing vaudeville, and later, seedier forms of entertainment, to bring in the bucks. Once her stars begin to rise however, Louise begins to push back against Rose's influence.
With a classic score by Stephen Sondheim, and a complex and emotionally-charged book from Arthur Laurents, Gypsy originally opened on Broadway in 1959, and over the course of its storied production history, has won three different actresses the Tony Award for their portrayal of Momma Rose.
