Q.  What happens when you combine a classic mother/daughter conflict with some of the world's most talented and creative theatre makers?
A.  You get 'Gypsy' - the mother of all musicals!

With music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and a book by Arthur Laurents, the musical theatre classic has been revived on Broadway four times and been staged countless times around the world.

?Originally produced in 1959, the powerhouse musical received eight Tony nominations and countless accolades from numerous critics and writers.

Gypsy is loosely based on the 1957 memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, the famous striptease artist, with a spotlight on her mother, Mama Rose. The story follows the dreams and efforts of Mama Rose, whose name has become synonymous with "the ultimate show business mother", to raise two daughters to perform onstage and casts an affectionate eye on the hardships of show-business life.  Rose is determined that her younger daughter June will have a successful career, but after June elopes, Mama turns all her attention on her older, less talented daughter, Louise, who eventually becomes a famous burlesque stripper

'Gypsy' boasts one show-stopping song after another - including "Everything's Coming up Roses", "Together (Wherever We Go)", "Small World", "Some People", "Let Me Entertain You", and the star making "Rose's Turn"
