Program Notes

Gypsy is a 1959 musical with music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and a book by Arthur Laurents. 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 musical contains many songs that became popular standards, including 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.
