    Regarded by many theatre professionals as the finest musical ever created, Gypsy is the ultimate tale of an ambitious stage mother fighting for her daughters’ success – while secretly yearning for her own. Set across America in the 1920s and 30s, when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born, Arthur Laurents’ landmark show explores the two-bit show business with brass, humor, heart, and sophistication. 
    The celebrated score by Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim boasts one glorious hit after another, including “Everything's Coming Up Roses,” “Let Me Entertain You,” “Some People,” “You'll Never Get Away from Me,” “If Momma Was Married,” “All I Need Is the Girl,” “You Gotta Get A Gimmick,” “Small World” and “Together Wherever We Go.” 
     opened at the Broadway Theatre on May 21, 1959, starring Ethel Merman as Rose and Sandra Church as Louise. Later moving to the Imperial Theatre, the show played for 702 performances. In London, Gypsy played for 300 performances at the Piccadilly Theatre, starring Angela Lansbury as Rose. This extremely successful show has been revived on Broadway no less than four times: starring Angela Lansbury in 1974, Tyne Daly in 1989, Bernadette Peters in 2003, and Patti LuPone in 2008. A 2015 revival at the Savoy Theatre in London starred Imelda Staunton.

    COVID policy: Vaccination and masking, though recommended, are optional to attend performances at the Schuster. If you are experiencing cold or flu like symptoms, please stay home. Contact Angela at, and if there is a seat available for a different day or show, your ticket can be transferred. However, no refunds will be available.
