Gypsy

Ever wonder who originated the role of overbearing stage mother? Following relentless Mama Rose as she drags her two daughters across the country in hopes of fame and fortune on the 1920s Vaudeville circuit, Gypsy is loosely based on the memoirs of burlesque star Gypsy Rose Lee. Fearful of a lawsuit, Lee waited until her mother died before publishing the book that chronicled her childhood. Despite their tumultuous relationship, the stripteaser provided perfect inspiration for an American musical icon. Tim Hedgepeth directs Anna Gangai and 27 others in the Playhouse’s production.

    Owned by a man with beard enough for two, Mark Vollmer’s coffee trailer offers quality coffee and pastries to cappuccino-craving commuters at 410 and Nacogdoches. In the time since it’s opened, the area surrounding this coffee trailer has transformed into a hub of food vendors with varied seating options, some natural greenery and occasional live music. Grab an iced latte (there’s house-made almond milk for vegans, too) and admire one of the classic muscle cars that frequently stop by.
