    Last Chance To See Citically Acclaimed Five Star Production Of Gypsy Starring Imelda Staunton!

    Jonathan Kent's five-star production of Gypsy starring Imelda Staunton as Rose will have its final performance on 28 November 2015 as previously announced.   Having smashed the all time box office record at the Savoy Theatre and subsequently recouped, Kent’s production originally opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre in October last year.  Following a second set of five-star reviews, producers Michael Harrison and David Ian announced an extension to the West End run in April.

    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, from 12 October 2015, comprises Imelda Staunton who plays Rose, Gemma Sutton as Louise, Lauren Hall as June and Peter Davison as Herbie.  The Company also features Dan Burton as Tulsa, Jack Chissick as Mr Goldstone, Anita Louise Combe as Tessie Tura, Patrick Romer as Pop, Roger Dipper as L.A., Louise Gold as Mazeppa, Lauren Varnham 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.
     
    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.
