This 2014 production of Gypsy was originally produced at the Chichester Festival Theatre, and then transferred to the Savoy Theatre in London in 2015.
Directed by Jonathan Kent with choreography by Stephen Mear and set and costume design by Anthony Ward, the show stars Imelda Staunton as Rose, Peter Davison as Herbie, Lara Pulver as Louise, Gemma Sutton as June, Dan Burton as Tulsa, Anita Louise Combe as Tessie Tura, Louise Gold as Mazzeppa and Julie Legrand as Electra.
Gypsy: A Musical Fable has music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and a book by Arthur Laurents. The story is loosely based on the memoirs of striptease artist Gypsy Rose Lee, and centres on her mother, Rose – the ultimate show business mother.
The show features songs including “Everything’s Coming Up Roses”, “Together (Wherever We Go)”, “Small World”, “You Gotta Get a Gimmick”, “Let Me Entertain You”, “All I Need Is the Girl”, and “Rose’s Turn”.
