As a mulit-platform web series “Gypsy Robe” is hot, youthful, edgy, fun, exciting, and hip. It embodies one of Broadway and more importantly America’s most treasured artists…. THE GYPSY! Called “Triple Threats” for their ability to sing, dance and act. This is a breed of performer not easily categorized, is usually a chorus member known in part for his or her dedication, professionalism and performing career. The robe is, in some ways, the performer’s “amazing technicolor dream coat.”. The recipient of the robe is a member of the cast who embodies the qualities of the most promising Broadway gypsy. Many aspire to this rarefied club but who actually has the “chops” to join.
