Imelda Staunton, Kevin Whateley and Lara Pulver to star in Gypsy at Chichester this summer
It will run at the Festival Theatre from 6th October-8th November and is based on the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, with book by Arthur Laurents, music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The show is considered by many to be the greatest of the Broadway musicals with classic numbers including Let Me Entertain You and Rose’s Turn.
Imelda Staunton returns to Chichester to play the legendary Mama Rose with Jonathan Kent directing her again (last time was Mrs Lovett with Michael Ball in Sweeney Todd in 2011).
Lara Pulver returns to Chichester to play Louise following her performance in Uncle Vanya (2012). Kevin Whately (ITV's Morse, Peak Practice and Lewis) makes his Chichester debut as Herbie.
