Matt this is covered on many threads here and on the Broadway board already.

Matt, I doubt that this show will transfer. Keep in mind that if I recall correctly (maybe someone like Mamma can remind me if I am correct or not) but Gypsy isn't exactly a show that is well receieved in London like it is on Broadway.

In Matt's defense the search feature on here can be much better. I am not sure that he used it. I am just saying that it is something that could be improved upon. I have recalled many times trying to find a thread that I made a long time ago using the search feature and nothing came up.

The search feature absolutely sucks. It will only search for AND statements in a definitive order not OR, and not AND where the words are not in order (if this makes sense)

The search 'feature' is a waste of time 99% of the time.
I know its a pain but what i do normally is 'manually' search the last 3, sometimes 4, pages!

If Patti doesn't play rose in london, Maybe Elaine Paige can play the role. I think she will be better than Patti

Why? (I hope you mean it has been over saturated)

The search feature does suck big time.

In Matts defence, I use the West End board a lot, the Broadway one is a bit frantic for my pacemaker. I did not know that Lupone was rumoured to come to London with Gypsy and I look at this board every day, but might not read every thread.

I think it would be good if Patti came to London, for a very brief 6 months engagement.

I am not sure if the people who said No, is because they don't like Patti or Gypsy?

qolbinau and Phantom: i said No because the show bores me to tears, there is no need for a revival of this show atm in London, i dislike Patti LuPone when she performs (i dont know the woman to say i dislike her...) and did i mention the boring part..?
