Luckiest Productions have teamed up with One Eyed Man Productions, in association with Hayes Theatre Co. to present Gypsy, a gripping mother-daughter story set in the 1920’s. The show opens at Hayes Theatre Co. on May 18th 2018, and features BMEG’s very own Rob Johnson.
Regarded as many as the greatest musical ever created, Gypsy is the ultimate mother-daughter story – the sophisticated, gripping, funny and heartbreaking tale of Madame Rose, and her fight for her daughters success, not matter what the cost.
Set all across America in the 1920’s, Arthur Laurent’s landmark show sees Rose, Louise and June grapple their act the dying days of vaudeville, and the birth of a shocking new form of entertainment – burlesque. Rose’s fanatic determination pushes her family’s loyalty to breaking point, but from the most unlikely of places emerges one of the twentieth century’s most illustrious and ingenious entertainers – Gypsy Rose Lee.
The celebrated score by Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim is packed with classic songs, including ‘Let Me Entertain You’, ‘Some People’, ‘Everything’s Coming Up Roses’, ‘Together Wherever We Go’, ‘You Gotta Get a Gimmick’, and the iconic ‘Rose’s Turn’.
Running time is 2.5 hours including interval.
