Beginning March 17, the classic Jule Styne-Arthur Laurents-Stephen Sondheim musical will offer talkback question-and-answer sessions with cast members following Wednesday night performances. Theatregoers who attend Wednesday evening performances will have the opportunity to ask questions of the cast following the performance. Gypsy began previews at the Shubert March 31, 2003, and officially opened May 1, 2003.
