The Jule Styne musical with lyrics by Stephen Sondheim is based on the life of famous stripper Gypsy Rose Lee.

Chichester artistic director Jonathan Kent will direct the show, that will run in Chichester from October 2014.

Other casting is to be announced although rumours are that Kevin Whately is to play Herbie and Lara Pulver to play Louise Hovick.

Imelda Staunton returns to Chichester after playing Mrs Lovett alongside Michael Ball in Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd in 2011, which transferred to the Adelphi Theatre.

If this production of Gypsy is a success, expect another West End transfer.

Other shows that may be coming to Chichester soon include a new production of Guys and Dolls.
