Loosely based on the memoirs of the queen of burlesque, Gypsy Rose Lee, GYPSY is the ultimate story about an aggressive stage mother. Join Rose her daughters June and Louise and their troupe in their trip across the United States during the 1920’s. Along the way Rose meets Herbie, a theatrical agent, and hires him as manager.

When the headliner of the show June elopes with one of the chorus boys Rose focus all her energy on making the shy Louise a star.
