Many people often ask, "what is art?". The majority of artists will tell you that art, while being expressive, also pushes the envelope. Art expresses through a specific medium, a feeling, a moment, an event, which the audience may or may not relate to on various levels.
Gypsy is the type of musical which accomplishes just that. At it's simplest, Gypsy is the story of a woman who becomes a stripper. Further beneath the surface, you will see this is actually the story of a woman's dream, her relationship with her daughter, and all the trials and tribulations which result from wanting that dream.
I would like to thank all of the cast/crew for their hard work and dedication. As director, I demand from both the directors and the actors what I demand from myself. All of these people have risen to that, and unknowingly superseded their highest expectations of themselves. Everyone learned something, perhaps myself most of all. Theatre is a living organism, which often grows of its own accord, against the wishes of those attempting to control the outcome. Nonetheless, theatre is magical and majestic; may the spell it casts over you be a pleasant and memorable one.
So, sit back, and enjoy!
If, for just a few hours you forget the present and are transported to
a different lifetime, then we have accomplished our job.
