GYPSY

From Friday, 10 March 2017, to Sunday, 26 March 2017

Story

Regarded by many theater professionals as the greatest 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 all across America in the 1920’s, when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born, Arthur Laurents’ landmark show explores the world of two-bit show business with artful humor, heart, and sophistication. The celebrated score, by Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim, boasts one glorious hit after another, including: “Let Me Entertain You,” “Some People,” “You’ll Never Get Away from Me,” “If Momma Was Married,” “All I Need Is the Girl,” “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “You Gotta Get A Gimmick,” “Small World” and “Together Wherever We Go.”

GYPSY marks Yvonne Erickson’s first appearance on the Clear Space stage – a debut this Equity actor, with a 30-year career as a stage, screen and voiceover performer, also finds exciting: “Acting in a smaller, more intimate theatre like Clear Space truly brings the audience to you in a way that simply cannot be experienced in a big, 600+ seat house. The audience really becomes part of the show – you can just feel them right there with you, partnering on the performance – it’s incredibly exhilarating!”

Says Director David Button, “This is a wonderful show, complete with great music and deeply engaging characters. One challenge with producing a Broadway classic is to stage such a well-known piece in a way that makes it fresh and exciting. We think we’ve succeeded with GYPSY, and can’t wait to see if the audience agrees!”
