Imelda Staunton will star as the indomitable Momma Rose in the West End transfer of Jonathan Kent's five star sell-out Chichester Festival Theatre production of Gypsy, the first to be seen in London for forty years. This strictly limited season opens at the Savoy Theatre next April. Further casting for Gypsy, which goes on sale today, will be announced shortly.

Gypsy is considered by many to be the greatest of the Broadway musicals. It tells the true story of ambitious showbiz mother Momma Rose, who treks across America with her daughters Baby June and Louise in search of success with their homespun vaudeville act. As times change, Momma Rose is forced to accept the demise of vaudeville and the rise of burlesque, as well as her daughters' quest for autonomy.

The show reunites actor Imelda Staunton and director Jonathan Kent who previously collaborated on the Chichester Festival Theatre production of Sweeney Todd, which, after a sell-out run there, transferred to the West End. Kent also directed Staunton in Good People for Hampstead Theatre, which similarly transferred to the West End.

Multi award-winning actor Imelda Staunton's extensive theatre credits include Sweeney Todd for Chichester Festival Theatre, Guys and Dolls, A Chorus of Disapproval and Life x 3 for the National Theatre, A Delicate Balance and There Came a Gypsy Riding for the Almeida Theatre, They Shoot Horses Don't They? and The Wizard of Oz for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Slavs and Good People for Hampstead Theatre, Circle Mirror Transformation for the Royal Court Theatre, Entertaining Mr. Sloane at the Trafalgar Studios, Calico at the Duke of York's Theatre, The Corn is Green at the Old Vic, Uncle Vanya at the Vaudeville, Into the Woods at the Phoenix Theatre and Habeas Corpus at the Donmar Warehouse. Her many film credits include Pride, Maleficent, The Awakening, Another Year, Taking Woodstock, Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix, Vera Drake, Nanny McPhee, Bright Young Things, Shakespeare in Love, Sense and Sensibility, Peter's Friends and Twelfth Night. Her television includes the upcoming That Day We Sang, The Girl, Psychoville, Cranford Chronicles, The Wind in the Willows, My Family and Other Animals, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Fingersmith, Cambridge Spies, David Copperfield, The Singing Detective and An Englishman's Wife.

Gypsy begins previewing at the Savoy Theatre from 28 March 2015.
