Pitlochry Festival Theatre, 2023


Gypsy is one of the greatest and most dazzling of all musicals. Based on the tantalising memoir of famous burlesque artist Gypsy Rose Lee, it tells the story of ambitious showbiz mother Rose, who travels across America with her daughters, Baby June and Louise, in search of success with their homemade vaudeville act.

When Baby June leaves the act to elope, Rose vows to make introverted Louise into a star, and will do almost anything to see her daughter break into the big time.

Prepare to fall in love again with iconic songs, including Some People, Let Me Entertain You, and the show-stopping Everything's Coming Up Roses.

"This staging of Gypsy emerges as a show to remember"



"With standout performances and unique staging, this is a fresh new production of one of Broadways greatest musicals."



"This is a very clever production reimagining a classic show."



"There was no lack of application from musical director Rob Hiley's band, appropriately a trad jazz sextet of trumpet, trombone, clarinet/sax, piano, bass and drums, all of them also crucial characters in the storyline."
