Gypsy is loosely based on the famous stripetease artist Gypsy Rose Lee. The character of June is based on Lee's sister, the actress June Havoc. The story focuses on their mother, Rose, whose name has become synonymous with "the ultimate show business mother." It follows the dreams and efforts of Rose to raise two daughters to perform onstage, first in vaudeville and later burlesque. The story casts an affectionate eye on the hardships ofshow business life.
The musical contains many songs that became popular standards, including "Small World," "Everything's Coming Up Roses", "You'll Never Get Away from Me," and "Let Me Entertain You."
