Correct me if I'm wrong. But, I was under the impression that Gypsy wasn't really a musical that sold well in London. If that's the case, then why are they going to spend money to transfer the most recent Broadway revival over to London?

well Xanadu wasn't a musical that sold really well in the US so why take the chance on that?

Ms Lupone was perfection in this production. I hope the story is true!

I can't see how Patti would sell it over here. She doesn't exactly have the same following/reputation as she does on Broadway.

Personally, I can't stand her style of performance so would much rather see someone else, but that's beside the point.

I think Gypsy is off the cards. No longer mentioned on the website, Xanadu still is though

So a freind of mine who knows David Ian quite well told me tonight that he had spoke to him about Gypsy and that Ian said it probably was not going to happen right now.

I noticed that too. Ah well, didn;t seem likely to be honest, it seems that veyr few revival productions do transfers. Hope Xanadu still comes though.
