SYDNEY AUDIENCES have only two weeks left to see the extraordinary musical GYPSY before it leaves the Hayes Theatre Co on July 7.

The stellar cast stars three-time Sydney Theatre Award winner Blazey Best (Only Heaven Knows) as Rose and Laura Bunting (Rent) as her daughter Louise while Sophie Wright (Kinky Boots) plays June and Anthony Harkin (The View UpStairs) plays Herbie.
The remaining cast members include Jane Watt (Gate 64) as Tulsa, Mark Hill (Muriel’s Wedding) as Tulsa, Jessica Vickers (Miracle City) as Baby June with Rob Johnson (Calamity Jane)and Matthew Predny (High Fidelity as Rose’s News Boys.
Critically acclaimed and multiple-award winning, Gypsy is the ultimate mother-daughter story - a gripping, funny and heartbreaking tale of the damage we do to those we love.
Rose’s own frustrated dreams of stardom are ploughed into her children; her own childhood wounds push her to glorify and smother her daughters in turn, and eventually to drive them both away.
Set across America in the 1920s, Arthur Laurents’ landmark show documents the dying days of vaudeville and the birth of a shocking new form of entertainment – burlesque.
Rose’s fanatic determination pushes her family’s loyalty to breaking point, but from the most unlikely of places emerges one of the twentieth century’s most illustrious and ingenious entertainers - Gypsy Rose Lee.
The celebrated score by Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim is packed with classic songs, including Let Me Entertain You, Some People, Everything’s Coming Up Roses, Together Wherever We Go, You Gotta Get a Gimmick, and the iconic Rose’s Turn.
With only two weeks left to see this theatrical masterpiece, tickets for Gypsy are available online at www.hayestheatre.com.au or by calling the Hayes Theatre Co box office during business hours on (02) 8065 7337.
