Gypsy at the Savoy Theatre. Don't miss Gypsy, one of the greatest ever Broadway musicals, as it transfers to the West End following its sell-out, rapturously acclaimed five-star run at Chichester Festival Theatre. Imelda Staunton delivers a "knock-out performance" Based on the true life memoirs of legendary burlesque entertainer, Gypsy Rose Lee, it tells the tale of Momma Rose and her two daughters.
Gypsy; This is one of the all time great musicals. Faithful to the Broadway show, and every single person in this production brings their A game. Nothing beats Natalie Wood as Gypsy. But the Showstopper is Rosalind Russell as Mama Rose, in her final number 'Rose's Turn' it is one of the greatest moments of frustrated ambition ever put on screen. There may be many who sing it better, none touch Russell for pathos. Outstanding.
