GYPSY – May 2014

Williamstown Musical Theatre Company is proud to present GYPSY running from the 2nd to 17th May 2014 at the Williamstown Mechanics Institute Theatre.

 

GYPSY is loosely based on the 1957 memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, the famous striptease artist, and focuses on her mother, Rose, whose name has become synonymous with “the ultimate show business mother.”

 

It follows the dreams and efforts of Rose to raise two daughters to perform onstage and casts an affectionate eye on the hardships of show business life. The character of Louise is based on Lee, and the character of June is based on Lee’s sister, the actress June Havoc.

 

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 YouSome People, You’ll Never Get Away from MeIf Momma Was Married, All I Need Is the Girl, Everything’s Coming Up RosesYou Gotta Get A Gimmick and Together Wherever We Go.
