Set in the 1920s, the dying years of vaudeville, Gypsy is the story of Rose, an aggressive and demanding stage mother, and her two daughters. Aspiring to be a star herself, she manages to alienate those around her, pushing the girls to perform. Along with the extremely talented collaboration that created this show, Ethel Merman performed as Rose for the entire Broadway run of 702 performances. A film was made in 1962 with Rosalind Russell as mother Rose, and Natalie Wood appearing as stripper Gypsy Rose Lee. Familiar songs include “Let Me Entertain You” and “Everything’s Coming Up Roses”.
