Regarded by many theater professionals as the greatest musical ever created, GYPSY is the ultimate tale of an ambitious stage mother fighting for her daughters' success... while secretly yearning for her own. Set all across America in the 1920's, when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born, Arthur Laurents' landmark show explores the world of two-bit show business with brass, humor, heart, and sophistication. The celebrated score by Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim boasts one glorious hit after another, including: '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,' 'Small World,' and 'Together Wherever We Go.'

In its second season on the Boston theater scene, Theater UnCorked takes a first crack at musical comedy and, even as it hits a few bumps along the way, it hits the funny bone again and again.

Nashville-based chanteuse Miss Tess has unveiled 'If You Don't Know How To Love Me,' the latest track from her forthcoming album The Moon Is An Ashtray. 'Combining vintage-inspired instrumentation and Miss Tess' smoky, emotive vocals, 'If You Don't Know How to Love Me' explores the pitfalls of a long-term relationship that's fizzling out. It's the kind of tune in which the hurt lingers quietly behind the lyrics,' said The Boot, who called the song 'solemnly smoldering' and compared Miss Tess' vocals to those of Bonnie Raitt, Patsy Cline, and Lindi Ortega. 'This song speaks to the struggles we go through to compromise and make things work with a partner, while all along questioning the confidence of the relationship,' Miss Tess told The Boot. 'Are we trying to make it work because we truly believe it's right for us, or are we just stuck because we are comfortable enough, and too afraid of change to try something new?'

Broadway's Dale Hensley went from milking cows and putting on shows in his living room in the rural midwest to a thriving Broadway career that has spanned almost four decades. It took him 10 years living in New York before making his debut, and then he never stopped. He has learned that a prepared understudy is the only option, getting out of his own way was essential and finding an outside passion kept him sane. Life in the 'all about me' of showbiz can be exhausting. His Act 3 now includes working with special needs groups and bringing Broadway to them. With the group AHRC, he has created a program that enriches the hidden talents in a group of people often forgotten. In return it has opened a door to his heart. Upcoming shows will be Wednesday Dec. 11th at 11:30 Rudolf and Wed. Dec. 18th 11:30 Scrooge. Both at the Theatre Center 1627 Broadway.
