Theatre 29 and Directors Gary Daigneault and Ed Will have announced the audition date for the second show of the 2013 season, The Broadway classic “Gypsy”, a musical fable suggested by the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee.
While early Theatre season announcements featured the Musical “How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying”, The licensing Company suspended the rights to accommodate a travelling show in Southern California and the Musical “Gypsy has been substituted.
“Gypsy” is the ultimate story about an aggressive stage mother. Join Rose, June and Louise in their trip across the United States during the 1920’s, when vaudeville was dying and 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”. “Gypsy” is a gripping story of one of the most frightening aspects of show business.
This will be the thirteenth musical in thirteen years directed by the Daigneault-Will team. Daigneault takes the artistic director task, while Will serves as the shows music Director. Local audiences have come to know the team as always producing, high quality, well-produced big cast shows.
