Overview

The Savoy Theatre is currently home to Gypsy which stars Imelda Staunton, Lara Pulver and Peter Davison. Don't miss Gypsy, one of the greatest ever Broadway musicals, as it transfers to the West End following its sell-out, rapturously acclaimed five-star run at Chichester Festival Theatre. Imelda Staunton delivers a 'knock-out performance' (The Independent) as Momma Rose in Jonathan Kent's 'dazzling revival' (Mail on Sunday), alongside Lara Pulver, who reprises her 'stunning' (The Independent) role as Louise. They'll be joined by Peter Davison as Herb, in this gloriously entertaining musical fable that features 'showstopping' (Mail on Sunday) choreography from Stephen Mear. Based on the true life memoirs of legendary burlesque entertainer, Gypsy Rose Lee, it tells the tale of Momma Rose and her two daughters, Baby June and Louise, trekking across America in their family vaudeville act. But times are changing, audiences are expecting more, and the two girls have their own ambitions in mind. The rise of burlesque is upon them, and nothing will ever be the same again for Momma Rose. With lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by Arthur Laurents and music by Jule Styne, this moving and 'scintillating' (The Times) production of Gypsy is the first to be seen in London for 40 years.

The Westin debut of this Broadway classic is thrilling. A wonderful production with a great cast and a fresh take on the original production.

Booked the Dreamgirls late but fortunately got great seats in the circle. The whole performance was simply brilliant with the song "And I'm Telling You" sung by Marissa Wallace bringing the whole audience to tears ... it was sooooo powerful 👌

Dreamgirls the musical was simply amazing. One of the best musicals I have seen on the London stage. Their voices are superb and it's full on the whole way through, they barely pause for the applause! A must see for any musical fan.

We didn't see any small/young children at the performance we attended. The music is 60s/70s style, and the staging is spectacular, so I think that would appeal to older children. I think that generally Dreamgirls would be... More

There are a lot of restaurants along the road outside the venue and just across the river is Southbank which is only a short walk away. It's not too far from Leicester Square either so there always somewhere close by
