Music by Jule Styne, Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Book by Arthur Laurents
Sept. 17 – Oct. 4, 2015
A long-time short-list production for Studio Tenn, “Gypsy” is widely exalted as the Greatest American Book Musical, integrating a rich, compelling story and complex characters into its Broadway songbook standards such as “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “Let Me Entertain You,” and “Together (Wherever We Go).”
Bombastic and overbearing stage mother Rose is desperate to catapult her children to stardom during Vaudeville’s heyday. When her younger daughter June flees the family and The Circuit, quiet, sidelined Louise steps into the limelight. With Vaudeville waning, mother and daughter find themselves on an unexpected path to fame.
Studio Tenn is going all out in this bold, dynamic production--nothing short of the royal treatment “Gypsy" deserves.
