The Savoy Theatre is currently home to Gypsy which stars Imelda Staunton, Lara Pulver and Peter Davison. 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' (The Independent) as Momma Rose in Jonathan Kent's 'dazzling revival' (Mail on Sunday), alongside Lara Pulver, who reprises her 'stunning' (The Independent) role as Louise. They'll be joined by 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 Momma 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 Momma Rose. With lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by Arthur Laurents and music by Jule Styne, this moving and 'scintillating' (The Times) production of Gypsy is the first to be seen in London for 40 years.

Not only was it a fantastic performance with a fantastic cast, it was also the Sets, Costume, Lighting & Choreography that was incredible. The Staff at the Theatre were beyond brilliant, security checks taking place as everyone entered the Theatre and despite the incidents in... More

Having booked to see this new musical wasn't really sure what to expect but was an absolutely brilliant show and would definitely recommend. Amber Riley was brilliant and the cast were great too. Thoroughly enjoyed the show and would definitely book if your considering it.

We saw Dreamgirls on Saturday at the Savoy theatre and I can honestly say this is the most incredible show and by far the best I have seen in London. Amber Riley is outstanding and I lost count of the standing ovations she had during the show. Any musical fan .... this is a must! Outstanding, incredible and mesmorising throughout

Lovely theatre, brilliant show. My only concern was our bags were not checked when entering the theatre which I found a bit disconcerting.
