About this show

Written nearly 15-years before Lee published "Gypsy: Memoirs of America's Most Celebrated Stripper", The Naked Genius tells the story of a burlesque performer named Gypsy Rose Lee -- author of a recently published memoir entitled "I'll Bare All". The cast of characters includes her manager, her mother, her publisher, four Chihuahuas and Ramona the baby chimp. It's a sweet farce about the struggle Gypsy faces between her desire for respectability and her burlesque roots. The evening reunites Tony Award winner Laura Benanti with her co-star of In The Next Room (or The Vibrator Play), Michael Cerveris.
