Chichester Festival Theatre’s production of Gypsy goes back into rehearsals this week ahead of a West End run at the Savoy Theatre. Damien Poole joins Imelda Staunton who returns to play the legendary Mama Rose.
Based on the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, with lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, featuring classics such as Let Me Entertain You, Rose’s Turn and Everything’s Coming Up Roses, Gypsy is both moving and spectacularly entertaining.
