With an extended season that must end on 28th November, don’t miss your “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” (The Daily Telegraph) to see GYPSY at the Savoy Theatre, London.

Imelda Staunton delivers “one of the greatest performances I’ve ever seen in a musical” (The Guardian) as Rose in Jonathan Kent’s “stunning revival” (The Times), alongside Lara Pulver as Louise and Peter Davison as Herb, in this gloriously entertaining musical fable that features “showstopping” (Mail on Sunday) choreography from Stephen Mear.

Based on the true life memoirs of legendary burlesque entertainer, Gypsy Rose Lee, it tells the tale of Rose and her two daughters, Baby June and Louise, trekking across America in their family vaudeville act. But times are changing, audiences are expecting more, and the two girls have their own ambitions in mind. The rise of burlesque is upon them, and nothing will ever be the same again for Rose.

With lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by Arthur Laurents and music by Jule Styne, this “perfectly pitched production is worth the 40-year wait” (The Times).
