Gypsy is the quintessential backstage musical, for many the best ever written. It tells the tale of vaudeville entertainer Gypsy Rose Lee, her sister, June Haver and their larger-than-life mother, Mama Rose. With a solid script by Arthur Laurents, an enduring score by Jule Styne and Sephen Sondheim’s lyrics, the show has retained all of its freshness and emotional strength and produced more than its share of Broadway standards, including “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “Small World,” and “Let Me Entertain You.”
