Based on the true life memoirs of legendary burlesque entertainer, Gypsy Rose Lee, the 1959 Broadway musical Gypsy tells the tale of Momma Rose and her two daughters, Baby June and Louise, trekking across America in their family vaudeville act. But times are changing, audiences are expecting more, and the two girls have their own ambitions in mind. The rise of burlesque is upon them, and nothing will ever be the same again for Momma Rose.
With lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by Arthur Laurents and music by Jule Styne, this production of Gypsy, transferred from Chichester Festival Theatre, is the first to be seen in London for 40 years. Songs include 'Everything's Coming Up Roses', 'Some People', 'Let Me Entertain You' and 'Together (Wherever We Go)'.
