Legend of the Gypsy Bride to Be Told at the Fringe

News   Legend of the Gypsy Bride to Be Told at the Fringe
 
It's not the beloved Jule Styne-Stephen Sondheim musical about Mama Rose, but a musical with Gypsy in its title will be performed at this year's New York International Fringe Festival.  

  Legend of the Gypsy Bride, a Gypsy musical extravaganza that uses authentic gypsy melodies from Transylvania and Hungary, will be presented at the Fringe Aug. 14-27.   Presented by the Present Company, with book and lyrics by David Jenness, the 15-member Sacred Clowns Performance Orchestra will assume all the play's roles.

  A modern day Beggar's Opera, the story follows an alcoholic writer who stumbles upon a band of real Gypsies under a highway in Queens. They weave a darkly comic tale for him about a depressed Gypsy dancer and her suitors. Eventually, the writer gets involved in the Gypsy Bride's search for meaning.

  The show plays at the Mazer Theatre, 197 East Broadway. Tickets are $15. Call 212-279-4488 or visit www.fringenyc.org(http://www.fringenyc.org/) for ticket and schedule information.
