With a book by Arthur Laurents,
music by Jule Styne, and lyrics by Stephen
Sondheim, Gypsy is speculated by many to be
the greatest of all American musicals and
tells the story of the dreams and efforts
of one hungry, powerhouse of a woman to get
her two daughters into show business. The
musical is loosely based on the memoirs of
famous striptease artist Gypsy Rose Lee and
features songs that have become standards
of the musical theatre canon, including “Some
People,” “Let Me Entertain You,”
“Rose’s Turn,” and the show-stopping,
"Everything's Coming Up Roses."

When the patriarch of the
Lundeen family passed unexpectedly, he had
unfinished business. "The man who loved
his family so much, he never told them"
came back to do just that. Appearing only
to his middle child, his second son and namesake,
he made us laugh, cry, and think about our
own family in The Henry Players production
of A Nice Family Gathering, seen last season.
This season, we meet up with the Lundeens
a short time later to see how they are managing
without him. It's Christmas and Grandma has
come for an extended stay, much to mom's dismay.
Each family member adds their own story to

Have you ever wondered where
lightning bolts were made, or who painted
the spots on ladybugs? Perhaps you’ve
asked yourself whose job it is to set down
the fog every evening and who picks it back
up in the morning. Welcome to Nocturno, the
mysterious island where the wind learns to
whistle, and people paint clouds. Ruled over
by the Great Goods the people of Nocturno
take pride in manufacturing the miracles we
see in the daytime. But someone is stealing
the very best of everything, even the very
best child, Iris.
