Gypsy
Book by Arthur Laurents
Music by Jule Styne
Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Directed by Lynn Soderberg
Assistant Director Dawn Martin
Musical Direction by Tom Knoll

Gypsy is loosely based on the 1957 memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, the famous striptease artist, and focuses on her mother, Rose, whose name has become synonymous with “the ultimate show business mother.”

While the title suggests that this musical is about the famous stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, it is really about her hard-driven, determined stage mother, Mama Rose. In the beginning, Rose concentrates on her talented younger daughter, June, leaving older, less talented Louise in the cold. When June tires of being cute and runs away, Rose turns to Louise instead.

Louise eventually does become “Gypsy”, and Rose is left by herself, her aspirations for her kids realized, but her own show-business aspirations still unrealized.

Tickets available at the Bonifas or online at www.playersdenoc.org
