Mama Rose takes over the stage
“Gypsy,” the ultimate story about an aggressive stage mother, comes to Sutter Street Theatre this month.
Join Rose, June and Louise in their trip across the United States during the 1920s, when vaudeville was dying and the burlesque was born. Jule Styne’s music and Stephen Sondheim’s lyrics include “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” and “Together Wherever We Go.” This is a gripping story of one of the most frightening aspects of show business.
This production is directed by Connie Mockenhaupt with musical direction by John Wilder and choreography by Dian Hoel.
“Gypsy” opens at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 16, and continues on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. through Sunday, Sept 21, at Sutter Street Theatre, 717 Sutter St. in Folsom.
