The perfect show for a Mother's Day gift

Tue 13 Mar 2012

This Mother’s Day, you can treat your loved ones to a memorable gift of West End quality musical theatre at Midlands prices.

For the Mother who has a hundred scarves, is trying to eat less chocolate and has all the pampering treatments she could ever need, a trip to the theatre makes a unique and memorable Mother’s Day gift. And what better show than the show about one of the ultimate stage mother’s – Momma Rose and her moving journey to make something of herself and her daughters.

Gypsy, the hugely anticipated musical revival is now on at Curve. Directed by Paul Kerryson, Gypsy is a Broadway classic, inspired by the memoirs of the famous burlesque dancer Gypsy Rose Lee. It charts the story of her mother, the infamous Momma Rose, and her determination to live out her own dreams of stardom through her two daughters. Her daughters are the centre of Momma Rose’s world and she will sacrifice everything to ensure their happiness and success.

In this Curve production, Momma Rose is played by the award-winning stage and screen actress Caroline O’Connor (credits include Chicago, West Side Story, Sweeney Todd, Follies, her award-winning role in Piaf, and her Olivier Award-nominated performances in Mack and Mabel and Bombshells). Featuring many well-loved numbers from the legendary Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim, including Everything’s Coming up Roses, You Gotta Have a Gimmick, Some People and Rose’s Turn, Gypsy is a musical spectacular with bite.
