GYPSY to Run 5/9-6/1 at Playhouse on the Square
The entertainment continues at Playhouse on the Square with the Tony award-winning musical Gypsy! Based on burlesque dancer Gypsy Rose Lee's memoirs of life with the ultimate stage mother, Gypsy follows the dreams and efforts of Mama Rose as she pushes her two daughters into show business during the last days of Vaudeville. With famous Sondheim songs such as, "Everything's Coming up Roses," "You'll Never Get Away From Me," and "Let Me Entertain You," Gypsy is a shining American musical theatre classic.
Gypsy is directed by Resident Company Member Jordan Nichols (Miss Saigon) and features Resident Company Member Carla McDonald (Spamalot; Ragtime; Spring Awakening; Grey Gardens) as Mama Rose. Associate Company Member Caroline Simpson (The Great American Trailer Park Musical) stars as June, and community favorite Leah Beth Bolton makes her Playhouse on the Square leading debut as Louise.
Gypsy runs May 9 - June 1 at Playhouse on the Square. The Pay What You Can performance is Thursday, May 15 at 8pm. Playhouse on the Square is located at 66 S. Cooper Street.
