Dec. 18-Jan. 26: Gypsy
You can see Gypsy, a musical fable, through January 26 at Arlington’s Signature Theatre. The show follows ultimate stage mother Momma Rose as she attempts to skyrocket her daughters to stardom, no matter what boundaries or people she has to push out of the way. Based on the memoirs of burlesque performer Gypsy Rose Lee, the Tony Award-winning play by Arthur Laurents features music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. You’ll hear songs such as “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “Some People,” and “Let Me Entertain You.”

Dec. 18-22: The Lion, The Unicorn, and Me
The Washington National Opera presents The Lion, The Unicorn, and Me, a new holiday-themed family opera on stage at The Kennedy Center through Sunday. Based on the children’s book by Jeanette Winterson, the show tells the Nativity story from a donkey’s point-of-view as an Angel tries to decide which of the animals will lead Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem. The performance is recommended for children ages 6 and up.

Music: “That’s Entertainment: That’s Entertainment / Let Me Entertain You” by Boston Pops Orchestra
