    Booking Extended For Gypsy Starring Imelda Staunton

    Jonathan Kent’s critically acclaimed production of Gypsy starring Imelda Staunton as the indomitable Rose today announces an extension to the run at the Savoy Theatre with booking now to 28 November 2015. Kent’s production originally opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre in October last year with the West End transfer opening last week when the production received a second set of five star reviews.

    Gypsy is considered by many to be the greatest of the Broadway musicals. It tells the true story of ambitious showbiz mother Rose, who treks across America with her daughters Baby June and Louise in search of success with their homespun vaudeville act. As times change, Rose is forced to accept the demise of vaudeville and the rise of burlesque, as well as her daughters’ quest for autonomy.
     
    The cast comprises Imelda Staunton who plays Rose, with Lara Pulver and Gemma Sutton who reprise the roles of Louise and June respectively, and Peter Davison joined the West End cast to play Herbie. The Company also features Dan Burton as Tulsa, Jack Chissick as Mr Goldstone, Anita Louise Combe as Tessie Tura, Harry Dickman as Pop, Roger Dipper as L.A., Louise Gold as Mazeppa, Lauren Hall as Delores, Clare Halse as Marjorie May, Billy Hartman as Uncle Jocko/Cigar, Tom Hodgkins as Mr Weber/Boucheron, Kieran Jae as Yonkers, Julie Legrand as Miss Cratchitt/Electra, Danielle Morris as Geraldine, Damien Poole as Georgie/Kansas (Dance Captain), Lucinda Shaw as Mother/Stripper/Showgirl, Luke Street as Little Rock and Natalie Woods as Agnes.  Swings are Philip Catchpole, Liz Ewing, Lauren Ingram and Tom Murphy.

    Gypsy at the Savoy Theatre Reviews:

    ★★★★★ “Imelda Staunton’s knock-out, psychologically searching performance as Momma Rose… Magnificent.” The Independent

    ★★★★★ “Jonathan Kent’s exemplary revival of Gypsy is nothing less than a triumph for Imelda Staunton.” Daily Telegraph

    ★★★★★ “Staunton’s strength of determination makes this quite possibly the most exciting thing I have seen on a stage. A truly great performance in a truly great show.” The Times

    Book is by Arthur Laurents, with music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim suggested by the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, choreography by Stephen Mear, designs by Anthony Ward, musical direction and orchestration by Nicholas Skilbeck, lighting by Mark Henderson and sound by Paul Groothuis.
     
    The first production to be seen in London for forty years, Gypsy is produced in the West End by Michael Harrison and David Ian.
