Gypsy the 1959 musical with music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and a book by Arthur Laurentsis is loosely based on the 1957 memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, the famous striptease artist, which focuses on her mother, Rose, whose name has become synonymous with “the ultimate show business mother.” It follows the dreams and efforts of Rose to raise her two daughters to perform onstage and casts an affectionate eye on the hardships of show business life. The character of Louise is based on Lee, and the character of June is based on Lee’s sister, the actress June Havoc.
