The Great American Musical
Here she is, World. Here’s Rose! Sherri L. Edelen (The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Company, Hairspray) stars as the iconic Momma Rose in the award-winning backstage musical favorite.
Set during the 1920s fading vaudeville circuit, Gypsy portrays the rise of famed burlesque performer Gypsy Rose Lee. Momma Rose, the archetypal stage mother, steamrolls everyone in her way to propel her daughters into child stars. When the younger, more talented, daughter defects, Rose sinks all her hopes (and claws) into the elder. Bold, brassy, yet remarkably charming, Momma Rose puts today’s Dance Moms to shame.
With a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Signature’s “signature,” Stephen Sondheim, Gypsy features the beloved songs “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “Together (Wherever We Go),” “Small World,” “Some People,” “Let Me Entertain You” and “Rose’s Turn.”
“Everything about Gypsy is right…one of the best musicals.”
— The New York Times
