FDU Presents the Musical “Gypsy”

Fairleigh Dickinson University will present the musical, “Gypsy” in March and April. Performances will be held in Dreyfuss Theater at FDU’s College at Florham in Madison, N.J.

One of the most quintessential and beloved musicals of the 20th century, “Gypsy” is the ultimate story of the aggressive stage mother. Join Rose, Baby June and Louise in their trip across America in the 1920’s, when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. Jule Styne’s music and Stephen Sondheim’s lyrics include such classics as “Let Me Entertain You,” “Some People,” “You’ll Never Get Away From Me,” “All I Need Is The Girl” and the unforgettable “Everything’s Coming Up Roses.”

Performance dates are Wednesday, March 28 through Saturday, March 31 at 8 p.m., April 1 at 2:30 with an extension two weeks later on April 13, 14, at 8 p.m. and April 15 at 2:30 p.m.
