The ultimate tale of an ambitious stage mother fighting for her daughters’ success while secretly yearning for her own, Gypsy is one of the quintessential musicals of the 20th century. Set in 1920s America when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born, this landmark show features Assistant Professor of Musical Theatre Johnna Tavianini in the iconic role of Mama Rose. Gypsy is a fitting finale to the illustrious career of George and Frances Ball Distinguished Professor of Theatre Beth Turcotte who will retire in May of 2019.
