Playwright ARTHUR LAURENTS Composer JULE STYNE Lyricist STEPHEN SONDHEIM Producer Bay Area Musicals  [Website] Description Bay Area Musicals is pleased to open our FIFTH ANNIVERSARY season with GYPSY, considered among critics and theater historians to be the best American Musical---EVER! 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 luscious and recognizable score includes "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". Resident music director, Jon Gallo, will be arranging and gathering the top orchestral talents for the largest orchestra Bay Area Musicals has ever had. The 6 time Tony-winning musical will be directed and choreographed by Bay Area Musicals Artistic Director, Matthew McCoy. Come to the theater and let us ‘entertain you’!
