The Hoogland Center for the Arts starts its fall lineup of performances with the popular musical Gypsy.

The Hoogland's executive director, Gus Gordon, is also directing this production.

Gordon and leading lady Devin Dinora joined us on Illinois Edition to talk about the show they're calling the most ambitious of 2013:

"[Gypsy] is really my first adult role, per se... it's just totally out of my comfort zone. So it's definitely been an amazing experience in using my vulnerability, to be able to project that into confidence on stage." -Devin Dinora
