SPRINGFIELD – The Broadway classic Gypsy will bring a vibrant and memorable performance to Sangamon Auditorium at the University of Illinois at Springfield on Monday, November 5, at 7:30 p.m.

Start to finish, Gypsy never lets up. From the first trumpet blast to the last hot spotlight, this musical legend packs a wallop. Theatre giants Arthur Laurents, Jule Styne, Stephen Sondheim, and Jerome Robbins combined forces to trace the glitzy showbiz rise of two sisters, fueled by an overbearing, ambitious stage mother whose larger-than-life dreams turned them into stars.

Big, brassy, energetic, heart-touching, and funny, Gypsy reaffirms America's love of good old-fashioned entertainment with songs like "Let Me Entertain You," "Some People," "You Gotta Have a Gimmick," and "Everything's Coming Up Roses."

Tickets for this event are $35-$45 and are on sale now.
