Gypsy Presented by Little Theatre Company
8th November 2017 - 11th November 2017 - Every day
The event will be held in Palace Theatre, 430 London Road, Westcliff-on-Sea, SS0 9LA, and is Various to attend.
West End and Broadway hit Gypsy comes to Southend, following its sell-out, Olivier Award-winning production at the Savoy Theatre.
One of the greatest musicals of all time, Gypsy is based on the true life memoirs of legendary burlesque entertainer, Gypsy Rose Lee, and celebrates both sides of the sparkling, yet shadowy world of show business.
It tells the tale of Momma Rose and her two daughters, Baby June and Louise, trekking across America in their family vaudeville act. But times are changing, audiences are expecting more, and the two girls have their own ambitions in mind. When June marries and leaves, Rose turns her hopes and attentions to her elder, less obviously talented, daughter Louise. The rise of burlesque is upon them and nothing will ever be the same again for Momma Rose.
With lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by Arthur Laurents and music by Jule Styne, ‘Gypsy’ features songs that have since become show standards - famously helping to launch Sondheim’s career - including “Everything’s Coming Up Roses”, “Some People”, “Let Me Entertain You” and of course “Rose’s Turn”.
Book now and don’t miss this once in a lifetime chance to see the original showbiz musical!
This is an amateur production.
