Gypsy Show Summary
Stage legend Patti LuPone stars in a flashy new production of this classic musical. Set during the vaudeville era, Gypsy is about a relentless stage mother, Rose, traveling the country with her two daughters, June and Louise, and their manager, Herbie. While June and Louise wish their mother would settle down and marry Herbie, Rose continues to pursue dreams of stardom for her girls. When June deserts the act, Rose turns her attention to the shy Louise, whom she hopes to fashion into a star. When the act is booked into a burlesque house by mistake, Louise is forced into the spotlight and Gypsy Rose Lee is born.

This staging of Gypsy was first seen as part of New York City Center's new Encores! Summer Stars series.

Gypsy Show Synopsis:
A consummate show-biz musical suggested by the memoirs of stripper Gypsy Rose Lee. She was once just plain Louise, the awkward daughter of an unstoppably ambitious stage mother. When her pretty sister runs away from the family's minor vaudeville act, Louise tries to fulfill her mother's dreams. But it's not until trouping with Mama dwindles to appearing in burlesque, that Louise finally finds pleasure in the spotlight. The vibrant score includes “Some People,” “Let Me Entertain You,” “Together,” “Everything's Coming Up Roses” and “Rose's Turn.”

Show Notes:
At the last but one show, the lead actress, Patti LuPone stopped the show in the middle of the song "Rose's Turn", to yell at an audience member who got a little too fresh by taking photographs to memorailize the moment. The flash temporariliy blinded LuPone and she waited until she could see again, before picking up the next line and continuing on with the show.
