It may be the true story of Gypsy Rose Lee, but don’t be fooled by the title.
This play is all about mom! Before the controlling stage mothers of “Toddlers and Tiaras” and the antics of “Dance Moms,” there was Mama Rose—the true original stage mother. We can’t wait to take you back in time to the last days of vaudeville—a perfect fit for the stage of the Grand Old Lady of Prince Street—to re-invent this timeless classic. We will take a fresh look at what this larger than life woman had to do in order to ensure her daughters’ success. You may have seen this musical before, but we hope to make you feel as though you are seeing it for the first time.
