According to Baz

It's Rose’s turn! The much-discussed Gypsy, with Imelda Staunton as Rose and Jonathan Kent directing, will run at the Chichester Festival Theatre for a limited season from early October.
Kevin Whately is in final talks to play the much put upon Herbie, who gets steam-rollered by the hard-charging Rose. Lara Pulver is in talks about playing Louise Hovick, who grows into famous stripping artist Gypsy Rose Lee. (For those of you who don’t know musical theatre history, Gypsy’s really all about Rose, the mother.)
In another Chichester show, Sophie Thompson and Peter Polycarpou are in negotiations about being in Guys And Dolls.

An actor friend told me Guys And Dolls will star Carlos Acosta and be directed by Andrew Wright.
