On May 21, 1959, a new show opened on Broadway with Ethel Merman in the starring role of Mama Rose: GYPSY! And tonight, May 21, 2016, SBMT is proud to open our production of GYPSY! Starring Molly Thornton as Mama Rose, Marlene Berner as Louise (the future Gypsy Rose Lee), Tim Reynolds as Herbie, and Rhona McFadyen as June, we guarantee this is one show you will not want to miss.
