Based on the memoirs of legendary American burlesque entertainer and famous stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, GYPSY features lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, music by Jule Styne and a book by Arthur Laurents.

Gypsy is considered to be one of the greatest Broadway musicals of all time and features a show-stopping score of musical classics including Let Me Entertain You, Rose’s Turn and Everything’s Coming Up Roses.

This stellar, enormously entertaining production is set to be one of the great West End musical revivals of the decade.

Gypsy is directed by Jonathan Kent with choreography by Stephen Mear, design by Anthony Ward, musical direction by Nicholas Skilbeck, lighting by Mark Henderson, and sound by Paul Groothuis.
