LOOK Musical Theatre's
2012 season is in full swing at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. The season has included Avenue Q-The Musical, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and GYPSY. GYPSY is just about to wrap up it's run. The final performances will be held July 7 and 8 in the Williams Theatre.
GYPSY has been called "the greatest American musical" by numerous critics and writers, and is loosely based on the 1957 memoirs of the famous striptease artist Gypsy Rose Lee. The show focuses on the artist's domineering mother, Rose, as she pushes her daughters, Louise and June, to perform their vaudeville act across the United States during the 1920s, when vaudeville was on its last legs and burlesque was being born. Although Rose is the ultimate bossy stage mother, theatre critic Clive Barnes described her as "one of the few truly complex characters in the American musical…" With a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Jule Styne, and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Gypsy contains many songs that became popular standards, including “Small World,” “Everything’s Coming up Roses,” “Some People,” “Let Me Entertain You,” and “Rose’s Turn.”
