Hailed as the greatest American musical by numerous critics and writers, Gypsy follows the dreams and efforts of "the ultimate show business mother" as she grooms her daughters for a career on the stage. With popular standards including "Everything's Coming up Roses," "Some People" and "You Gotta Get a Gimmick", this musical offers a comedic but raw glimpse into the worlds of vaudeville and burlesque in the 1920's. From the same author-lyricist team as West Side Story, Gypsy lives up to the title of one of its standout numbers: "Let Me Entertain You".
Producer Ken Davenport held auditions on April 24 at Circle in the Square Theatre for aspiring young Broadway hopefuls to audition for “The GODSPELL Cast of 2032!” GODSPELL has always had a tradition of launching the next generation of stars so they decided, why not get a preview of tomorrow’s Broadway stars? You can see the WABC-TV New York News was there and Kaitlyn is in the clip.
Kaitlyn and her twin sister Kirstianna, (represented by Nancy Carson) also attended the show and were treated to a backstage tour where they met many of the Broadway Stars from the production. "I loved it!" said Kailtyn. "I would go every day, Day By Day if I could!" Kaitlyn is headed to callbacks on Saturday with several of the kids who auditioned for their big chance of being selected for one of the 10 positions.
The show is composed of various musical parables from The Gospel According to Matthew. Jesus Christ recruits a group of followers and teaches them various lessons through song and dance. The two-act musical is performed in the round with the musicians placed throughout the audience. The show features various musical styles, including rock ‘n roll, pop, R&B, ragtime, rap and more. The eccentrically dressed cast often gathers around Jesus as he tells different stories and sings about his teachings and the importance of love.
