Owner description: 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.

“Legally Blonde, Savoy Theatre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Went with my husband to see this as we both love the film. Great show with great cast. Some laugh out loud moments also. There is a lot of stairs to reach the seating area so be aware of this if you have difficulties. We booked interval drinks which were ready waiting for us. Really enjoyed the show, would definitely recommend this. Merchandise available to purchase and also snacks and ice creams.

Legally Blonde is a very enjoyable, fast moving musical. It's closing soon in London but goes on tour. Don't miss it.
