THIS SHOW HAS NOW CLOSED. YOU CANNOT BOOK TICKETS.
Gypsy, starring Imelda Staunton has transferred to the Savoy Theatre following the departure of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels in March 2015. The show opened for previews on the 28th March and is currently booking until November 2015. Press Night was April the 15th 2015.
The Chichester Festival Theatre production received so many rave reviews that people have been practically begging for the show to come to London, breaking a 42 year absence from the West End stage.
Gypsy is the tale of a stage mom, Momma Rose, who will go to any lengths to showcase her daughters’ talents, especially her seemingly favourite child, Baby June. Constantly choreographing routines for Baby June to showcase her talents, Momma Rose as desperate for her kids, and the children she takes in as part of her act, to hit the big time as she is for them to stay young.
Rose is tested as her children grow into young women who wish to branch out on their own. Meanwhile, Rose’s long suffering partner, Herbie, is pushed to the limited by her obsessive need for her children to become stars.
Chichester has a glowing history of West End transfers, with many shows each year coming from the Festival Theatre. Recent transfers include Singin’ In The Rain, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, Barnum, The Pajama Game and Sweeney Todd, which was also directed by Gypsy director Jonathan Kent and starred Imelda Staunton, who won an Olivier for her role as Mrs Lovett.
Evening performances of Gypsy start at 7.30pm and take place Monday – Sunday. Matinees begin at 2.30pm and take place on a Wednesday and a Saturday. The show running time is 2hrs and 50 minutes including interval.
Imelda Staunton is scheduled to appear in all performances, barring illness, until 28th November.
