To many theater historians, Gypsy is the greatest show from the Golden Age of Musicals. They maintain that Rose, the domineering, unforgiving vaudeville-age stage mother, is one of the greatest of all theatrical roles. Cincinnati actress Sherry McCamley will take on all of Rose’s mad, self-centered glory as she pushes her daughters June, who must remain a baby when she’s nearly 20, and Louise, the tomboy who becomes stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, into show business — even as Mama gets left behind. 

Through May 4. $21-$24. Covedale Center for the Performing Arts, 4990 Glenway Ave., Covedale, 513241-6550, cincinnatilandmarkproductions.com.
