"GYPSY, the 1959 fable of the last days of vaudeville, shines with a magnified transparency... there is no separation at all between song and character, which is what happens in those uncommon moments when musicals reach upward to achieve their ideal reasons to be." - The New York Times
Bay Area Musicals is pleased to open our fifth anniversary season with GYPSY, considered among critics and theater historians to be the best American Musical---EVER! 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 luscious and recognizable score includes "Everything's Coming up Roses", "Together (Wherever We Go)", "Small World", "You Gotta Get a Gimmick", "Let Me Entertain You", "All I Need Is the Girl", and "Rose's Turn." Resident Music Director Jon Gallo will be arranging and gathering the top orchestral talents for the largest orchestra Bay Area Musicals has ever had. Come to the theater and let us 'entertain you'!
GYPSY runs approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes, including one intermission.
