Gypsy - 2015 - West End

Gypsy is considered by many to be the greatest American musicals, and the role of Mama Rose is often called the 'King Lear' of the musical theatre canon. The show has appeared on Broadway no less than 5 times and continues to be produced by regional theatre companies around the whole of the USA.

The current West End run of Gypsy stars Imelda Staunton as Momma Rose and Lara Pulver as Louise/Gypsy Rose Lee.
