America loves GYPSY! It's the most revived of our Broadway musicals and the recent Phoenix tour of North America was living testament to its enduring charms. A critical darling from coast to coast, this GYPSY enjoyed standing ovations from Philly to Spokane. Kathy Halenda's turn in the role of Mama Rose was magical. Add to that a first rate cast, a top-notch book by Arthur Laurents and an unforgettable score of timeless Broadway hits that include "Let me Entertain You," You Gotta Have A Gimmick" and "Everything's Coming Up Roses" and its little wonder why GYPSY reigns as one of the greatest Broadway musicals of all time!
