A posting was made on the U.S. Broadway thread that The Ambassadors Theatre Group will be doing a production of GYPSY in London next year.. Has anyone heard anything about this,,, hope its true! Rumour also is that Ms. Patti LuPone will star. Any news on this at all?

I've been hearing the rumors for a bit as well. Don't know officially if there's any plans, but I wouldn't be surprised if Gypsy came to London. As for the Patti LuPone rumors- London would be extremely lucky to get to see her as Mama Rose. I was lucky enough to see her perform the role this summer, and she was absolutely amazing. However, unless the ban on her playing the role in a large mounting of the show has been lifted, I can't see it happening with LuPone as Mama Rose.

I wonder if this is Michael "midas touch" Grandage's next large scale project?

Great book, great numbers and a huge cast that is seldom used. This has always been the stumbling block to staging this show and a number of producers have shyed away becuase of this.

It is about time we had a revival.

It's a two week concert version based on the Ravinia production to play City Center. I'm not sure what they are planning for London, which is supposedly where it will go after New York.

Is there a Mama Rose attached yet or is it still in the development stage?

Patti will never be in a Arthur Laurents' production, not until he's dead. Unless this production is not under Arthur's influence, if they said it's Patti who will star, that will be definitely WRONG.
