Gypsy

The stage mother is an archetype as old as entertainment itself—or at least as old as the 1920s, the era that gave birth to Gypsy’s indelible version. Steely matron Rose pushes her daughters—reserved Louise and bubbly June—into show business as vaudeville performers. As the vaudeville circuit begins to die off and shepherds began demanding their crooks back, Rose relentlessly hones their act and seeks out ever-greater opportunities. After June elopes, Louise is left to bear the full weight of her mother’s ambitions and transforms herself into world-famous burlesque dancer Gypsy Rose Lee.

Inspired by the memoirs of the real Gypsy Rose Lee—and brought to the stage with music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim—Gypsy refuses to shy away from the darker side of show business. Louise assumes her onstage persona during a striptease to “Let Me Entertain You,” which grows more and more aggressive with the entrance of cymbal crashes and woozy horns. This brassiness characterizes many of the tunes in Gypsy—in “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” where the music’s bouncy optimism counterpoints faintly bullying lyrics such as “I had a dream about you, baby / It’s going to come true, baby.”
