Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if you want an incredibly well-acted show with powerful, memorable songs and a heavy story line.

Exquisite, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if You love Bernstein and Sondheim and Imelda Stanton. This "Gypsy" provides a more communal feel--it isn't just a one woman show. Superb.

Don't see it if hate pushy, stage mothers and dysfunctional families. Happy endings. Conventional stories.

"Though the production gets off to a slow start, the show finds its footing in the middle of the first act...The creative team needs to work out a few mic and sound issues, including sets that become thunderous distractions as they're rolled offstage. But despite the kinks, the answer to Baby June's question 'May We Entertain You?' is yes, this 'Gypsy' sure can."
