The memoir and the musical focus on the story of Gypsy Rose Lee’s mother, Rose, the quintessential “stage mother.” The musical features songs that have become standards of the musical theatre canon, including “Some People,” “Let Me Entertain You,” “Rose’s Turn,” and “Everything’s Coming up Roses.” Purchase tickets online
