Molly Thornton as Gypsy Rose Lee
Whenever attending what NY Times critic Ben Brantley has referred as “what may be the greatest of all American musicals,” "Gypsy," I sit with both hope and skepticism until I hear Rose sing those first few notes of “Some People.”  Well, I am here to say that not only does South Bay Musical Theatre’s Molly Thornton join a long line of Roses, she takes her place with full acting gusto and vocal bravado.
