GYPSY - A Musical Fable

Curtain Up, Light the Lights

Experience the glamour and grit of burlesque with Gypsy: A Musical Fable.  With bitingly witty lyrics by Stephen Sondheim (West Side Story) and iconic music by Jule Styne this is the perfect summer treat, directed by Paul Kerryson. Gypsy tells the true, humorous and powerful story of the rise to fame of Gypsy Rose Lee, star of 1930s burlesque and her tempestuous relationship with her ambitious mother Rose. Perhaps the best role in any musical, Rose is a force to be reckoned with as she throws all love interest aside, pushing her daughters June and Louise to stardom. Truly memorable songs include Let Me Entertain You, Everything’s Coming Up Roses, You Gotta Have a Gimmick and Some People. Not to be missed!

Double Olivier award winning actor Joanna Riding takes on the role of Rose, and leads a host of West End names in this Buxton International Festival and Buxton Opera House production,  following on from the success of last year’s acclaimed A Little Night Music.
