Hailed by critics as the great American musical-with music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and book by Arthur Laurents--the show is based on the memoirs of legendary stripper Gypsy Rose Lee. The highly entertaining story focuses on the ultimate stage mom, Mama Rose, and her hopes and dreams for her daughters, June and Louise. As the lights of Vaudeville dim, Louise steps into the spotlight as Gypsy Rose Lee and rises to become one of the most famed burlesque performers of all time. Featuring such songs as, Let Me Entertain You, Everything's Coming Up Roses, and You Gotta Have a Gimmick, this musical offers song, dance, humor and the sheer force of the amazing Mama Rose.
Opening August 11th and running through the 27th. Rated PG.
As always, wine, soft drinks, cheese, desserts and snacks are available to purchase and may be enjoyed during the performance.
Doors open one hour prior to show time.
