When Arthur Laurents was asked to adapt Gypsy Rose Lee’s autobiography into a musical, he declined. He thought, “Surely there are enough show-biz biographies!” But when he explored Gypsy’s early life, he discovered the story of her mother, a woman who had become a real-life “backstage” legend in her efforts to make her daughter a star. Fascinated by Gypsy’s “Mama Rose,” Laurents agreed to write the show with Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim. Together, they created a Broadway phenomenon many critics still regard as the best American Musical ever written…GYPSY! It certainly boasts one of Broadway’s finest scores, featuring songs like “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “Some People,” “Together (Wherever We Go),” “Let Me Entertain You,” “Small World,” “If Mama Was Married” and the shop-stopping “Rose’s Turn.”
