Regarded by many theater professionals as the greatest musical ever created, GYPSY is the ultimate tale of an ambitious stage mother fighting for her daughters’ success while secretly yearning for her own. Set all across America as vaudeville is dying and burlesque is being born, Arthur Laurents’ landmark show explores the world of two-bit show business with brass, humor, heart, and sophistication. The celebrated score by Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim boasts one glorious hit after another, including: “Let Me Entertain You,” “Some People,” “You’ll Never Get Away from Me,” “If Momma Was Married,” “All I Need Is the Girl,” “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “You Gotta Get a Gimmick,” “Small World,” and “Together Wherever We Go.”

Role # 1 - Rose Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
The ultimate stage mother. Lives her life vicariously through her two daughters, whom she's forced into show business. She is loud, brash, pushy, and single-minded, but at times can be doting and charming. She is holding down demons of her own that she is afraid to face. Her voice is the ultimate powerful Broadway belt. Minimal dance but must move well. Strong comedic and dramatic acting a must. She must be a force of nature on stage whose talent explodes beyond the footlights.

The character always dances slightly out of step, but the actress playing this part must be able to dance.
