FDU’s Performances of “Gypsy” Continue This Month

Being held at the Dreyfuss Theater at College at Florham in Madison.

Performances of "Gypsy" continue this April in the Dreyfuss Theater at Fairleigh Dickinson University's College at Florham in Madison.

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 1920s, 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.”

Upcoming performance dates are on April 13, 14, at 8 p.m. and April 15 at 2:30 p.m.

For the first time, FDU will be hiring a professional actress, Carole Healey, to appear alongside students in the role of “Mama Rose.”

“Gypsy” is directed by Stephen Hollis. Musical direction by Allen Cohen. The
choreography is by Cindy Thole. Set design is by Jonathan Wentz. Erin Schultz is
designing costumes, and lighting design is by David Landau.

Tickets for all shows are $5 for students and the FDU community, and $10 for
the general public. Tickets can be purchased at the door or reserved in advance
by calling 973-443-8644. For further information, email Stephen Hollis at
Hollis@fdu.edu or call 973-443-8467. FDU’s College at Florham is at 285 Madison
Ave., Madison.
