by Arthur Laurents, Jule Styne, and Stephen Sondheim
Inspired by the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, Gypsy tells the story of “Mama” Rose, an overbearing stage mother attempting to thrust her two daughters into stardom on a dying vaudeville circuit. We meet daughters June and Louise as children and follow the development of their act as they become adults, where June is the star, while the shy Louise plays a background role. When June runs off with one of the chorus boys, Rose decides to make Louise a star in her own right. Through unlikely means, Louise finds her identity as a performer. She adopts the stage name Gypsy Rose Lee and breaks free of her mother’s expectations, leaving Rose to deal with the fallout alone.
