Gypsy is considered by many to be one of Broadways all-time triumphs. It tells the story of ambitious showbiz mother Rose, who treks across the country with her daughters Baby June and Louise in search of success with their homespun vaudeville act. As times change, Rose is forced to accept the demise of vaudeville and the rise of burlesque, as well as her daughters quest for autonomy.
With a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, the show was suggested by the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee. The score features songs that have since become show standards, and helped launch the career of Sondheim. Everythings Coming Up Roses, Some People, Let Me Entertain You, Together, Wherever We Go and of course Roses Turn are among the musical highlights.
