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.

We were a bit disappointed not to see Amber Riley play Effie until we heard Karen Mav sing. I have never stood up after a song to applause until hearing her. Wow! The rest of the show was also amazing. Loved every second.

Cannot fault the show which we saw on Friday 6th October which was fabulous. However be mindful when you are booking seats, some of the seats have very limited leg room. Collection of tickets from box office was speedy and straight forward. .

At the risk of bucking the trend here (everyone appears to love this show), I didn't like it. I found it quite boring and not very engaging. The only thing that stopped my from walking out at the interval was Amber Riley - she's amazing...More
