“Gypsy” Lights Up Classic Theatre of Maryland: A Theatrical Spectacle of Dreams and Ambition

Classic Theatre of Maryland is set to stage the celebrated musical “Gypsy,” running from April 11th to April 28th. The production promises a riveting exploration of ambition, love, and dreams, as it portrays the journey of a determined stage mother and her daughters in the evolving world of show business during the 1920s and 30s.

Arthur Laurents’ “Gypsy” is recognized as a significant work in musical theater, blending elements of humor, emotion, and sophistication. The show’s score, crafted by Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim, features classics such as “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “Let Me Entertain You,” and “Some People.” The production, acclaimed for its powerful vocals, captivating choreography, and the inclusion of special animal performers, has earned 11 prestigious awards, including Tony and Drama Desk Awards.

Having debuted on Broadway in 1959 and undergone several successful revivals, “Gypsy” remains an iconic piece in American theater. Classic Theatre of Maryland’s production will offer a unique experience, complete with tap-dancing cows and the glamour of 1930s burlesque.

Tickets for this must-see event are available now.
