About this show

Based on Gypsy Rose Lee's 1957 memoir, Gypsy tells the story of Mama Rose, Lee's real life "backstage mother," and her daughter Louise, the character based on Lee, who finally, triumphantly emerges from Rose's shadow to become a star. Casting an affectionate eye on show business life in the heyday of vaudeville, Gypsy's score features one legendary standard after another – "Everything's Coming Up Roses," "Together (Wherever We Go)," "All I Need Is the Girl," and "Let Me Entertain You," among them.
