Imelda Staunton's Gypsy heading for Broadway

The acclaimed West End run of GYPSY, starring the fabulous Imelda Staunton sadly closes on Sunday, but the good news is that the  show has been  filmed by the BBC for broadcast this Christmas (time and date TBA)

And more good new is that Baz Bamingboye reports in the UK Daily Mail this morning that Broadway could be next saying:  "We are actively pursuing and trying to work out the right way to go to New York with Imelda in Gypsy,' said Michael Harrison, who produced the show with David Ian. The Jonathan Kent production recouped its costs and made a profit for investors which (as we know) doesn't happen with every musical production."

He added that  Stephen Sondheim was sitting behind him  at the Savoy last Saturday and said it was 'beyond doubt' that Staunton's Rose was one of the best he has seen."
