Preview: Gypsy at Broadway at Music Circus
Carolee Carmello has street cred, particularly when that street is the Great White Way—Broadway. The multi-Tony Award nominee goes from playing Aimee Semple McPherson in the musical Scandalous to starring as the sorta scandalous Mama Rose, pushing her daughter Gypsy Rose Lee toward burlesque stardom in Gypsy, playing through this weekend only. Mama Rose put the “mother” in stage mother. The musical, a Music Circus favorite, is one of Broadway’s most acclaimed shows. Thu-Sat 7:30pm (with 2pm shows Thu & Sat), Sun 3pm. Through 7/29. Broadway at Music Circus, Wells Fargo Pavilion, 1419 H Street; $45-$99; (916) 557-1999; broadwaysacramento.com.
