Gypsy: A Musical Fable
Author(s): Book by Arthur Laurents, music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Company: Buxton Opera House & Buxton International Festival
Gypsy tells the true, humorous and powerful story of the rise to fame of Gypsy Rose Lee, star of 1930s burlesque and her tempestuous relationship with her ambitious mother Rose.
Rose is a force to be reckoned with as she throws all love interest aside, pushing her daughters June and Louise to stardom. Songs include "Let Me Entertain You", "Everything’s Coming Up Roses", "You Gotta Have a Gimmick" and "Some People".
