July 27 – August 2
First Muny production in 12 years!
Revered by many as the greatest musical ever written, Gypsy is the timeless tale of an ambitious stage mother, Momma Rose, fighting for her daughters’ success…while secretly yearning for her own. With a book by Academy Award-winner Arthur Laurents and lyrics by Tony Award-winner Stephen Sondheim, Gypsy features countless showstoppers, including “Let Me Entertain You,” and “Together, Wherever We Go.” Take our word for it, “You Gotta Get a Gimmick,” or better yet a ticket, to see this spectacular Muny gem shine.
