Rita McCann, who plays “Rose” in Gypsy, talks about playing the ultimate show business mother in this beloved musical

The musical Gypsy, featuring music by Jules Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, plays its final performances at the John Cranford Adams Playhouse, October 25-27, 2013. The book by Arthur Laurents is set backstage on the vaudeville and burlesque circuits of the 1920s and 30s. Filled with an array of wonderful songs, such as “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “Let Me Entertain You,” and “Together, Wherever We Go,” Gypsy is considered by many critics to be one of the greatest musicals of all time.
