GYPSY Starring Carolee Carmello Begins At Broadway At Music Circus Next Week
The 2018 Broadway At Music Circus season continues with Gypsy, one of musical theater's most acclaimed and enduring works. This landmark show, with a celebrated score by Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim, is based on the life of burlesque queen Gypsy Rose Lee. A singularly-focused mother takes her daughters on a cross-country adventure in pursuit of fame and fortune on the dying Vaudeville circuit.
Classic songs include "You Gotta Get A Gimmick," "Let Me Entertain You" and the show-stopping "Everything's Coming Up Roses." Performances of Gypsy are Tuesday, July 24 through Sunday, July 29 at the Wells Fargo Pavilion.
Broadway veteran and multi-Tony Award nominee Carolee Carmello will be taking on the role of the indomitable Mama Rose. Carmello most recently appeared as Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street at Barrow Street Theatre.
Her extensive Broadway credits include originating the roles of Mae Tuck in Tuck Everlasting, Aimee Semple McPherson in Scandalous the Musical, Mrs. du Maurier in Finding Neverland, and Lucille Frank in Parade as well as appearing on Broadway in Sister Act, The Addams Family, Mamma Mia!, Lestat, Falsettos, 1776 and more.
Broadway At Music Circus is produced under the leadership of Producing Artistic Director/COO Scott Klier and Artistic Consultant Glenn Casale. California Musical Theatre President/CEO is Richard Lewis.
