Gypsy

Curtain up, light the lights … Gypsy, one of the greatest of all Broadway musicals, returns to York for the first time in 25 years in a new production by Pick Me Up Theatre.

The show tells the story of Momma Rose, her two daughters June and Louise, and the struggle to make a living on the 1930s Vaudeville

circuit.

It’s loosely based on the memoirs of the celebrated striptease artist Gypsy Rose Lee and focuses on her fearsomely driven mother Rose – the archetypal “Stage Mother”.

The songs in the show have become standards of the musical theatre canon – including Let Me Entertain You, Rose’s Turn, Together (Wherever We Go), Gotta Get a Gimmick and the show-stopping Everything’s Coming Up Roses.

With music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Arthur Laurents, Gypsy was a smash-hit when it first appeared on Broadway in 1959 – and the recent London revival won four Olivier Awards including best actress in a musical for Imelda Staunton as Rose.

Susannah Baines – Mrs Lovett in Pick Me Up’s acclaimed production of Sweeney Todd – plays Rose in Robert Readman’s production at York's Grand Opera House.

Maya Tether (Princess Badroubadour in Disenchanted) is Dainty June, Maren Fagerås Nævdal (Little Mermaid in Disenchanted) is Louise, Nick Lewis (King Arthur in Spamalot and title role in Sweeney Todd) plays Herbie, and George Stagnell (Private Peaceful) is Tulsa.

And the trio of Gotta Get A Gimmick showgirls are Katie Melia, Alexa Chaplin and Hayley Bamford, fresh from their success as the equally sassy princesses Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Pocahontas in the UK premiere of Disenchanted.
