Latest Review: "One of the best performances I have seen, Imelda poured her heart and soul into this wonnderful ..."

Important Info: Please note that the following performances of GYPSY are going to be filmed: TUESDAY 6th OCT – 7.30pm WEDNESDAY 7th OCT – 2.30pm WEDNESDAY 7th OCT – 7.30pm There will be cameras in the theatre auditorium in both the Stalls and Dress Circle areas.

Stephen Sondheim’s famous Broadway musical Gypsy returns to a West End stage from 2015 with Imelda Staunton as the iconic Rose Hovick, the show business mother who plans for a life in the spotlight for her two daughters. The production lands at the Savoy Theatre following its previous run at the Chichester Festival Theatre and sees Jonathan Kent take on the role of director. It is likely to be one of the biggest west end shows of the year as audiences flock to witness what is considered a classic piece of musical theatre, which wowed those that first saw it back in the 1950s.

In Gypsy we meet Rose and her two daughters June and Louise (based on the real life performers Rose Havock, Gypsy Rose Lee and June Havock, respectively). Rose is the determined and fiery mother who showcases June as the star of their musical hall performances. But this is a struggle and when June quits, it is up to Louise to fill the role in an era when a life in show business faces great hardship and change.

It features musical numbers like Everything’s Coming Up Roses, Together Wherever We Go, You’ll Never Get Away From Me and All I Need Is The Girl, among many others.

Those with theatre tickets will need little introduction to star performer Imelda Staunton, who reprises the role of Rose from the Chichester Festival Theatre, as she has enjoyed a hugely successful career on the stage and screen. In addition to recent performances in films like Paddington, Maleficent and Pride, she has also made high profile appearances in the West End in the likes of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street at the Adelphi Theatre (and Chichester), Entertaining Mr Sloane at the Trafalgar Studios and Guys & Dolls at the National Theatre, plus many others.

So it would be right to say that Gypsy is in safe hands as it makes its way back to the West End for the first time since 1974 as audiences are given the chance to see a classic production in a city that also boasts new hits like Matilda The Musical.

Gypsy is at London’s Savoy Theatre (following the run of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) from spring 2015.
