Our 1977-1978 Season: Mainstage

Facebook Share Icon Program Cover for Gypsy


Book by Arthur Laurents, Music by Jule Styne

GYPSY is the ultimate story about an aggressive stage mother. Join Rose, June and Louise in their trip across the United States during the 1920's, when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. Jule Styne's music and Stephen Sondheim's lyrics include Let Me Entertain You, Some People, You'll Never Get Away from Me, If Momma Was Married, All I Need Is the Girl, Everything's Coming Up Roses, You Gotta Get A Gimmick and Together Wherever We Go. This is a gripping story of one of the most frightening aspects of show business.

FUN FACT: The costumes worn in "The Salute to Minskys" by the show girls and Gypsy are the originals made by Gypsy Rose Lee and purchased at an auction by Honey Wilde and Pat Berkman.

Opening Night: Friday, May 5, 1978 - Closing Night: Saturday, May 20, 1978
