Gypsy is a great show with a lot of wonderful female characters-Mama Rose, Louise (the daughter who eventually becomes Gypsy Rose Lee), June and the three strippers who have a knockout song together. The male lead Herbie needs to be a strong actor rather than singer. The part of Tulsa, June's boyfriend, does have to sing and dance. Tons of chorus stuff for women plus the young boys who back up Baby June in the first act could be played by girlsif necessary.
Well drawn characters, great book, great score.
