Olivier Awards: Best Musical Revival, Best Actress in a Musical, Imelda Staunton, Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Musical, Lara Pulver.
This critically acclaimed West End production, filmed live in London, features Imelda Staunton as Mama Rose in a performance that the Guardian called “one of the greatest performances I’ve ever seen,” as well as powerful turns by Lara Pulver as Louise and Peter Davison as Herbie.
The production was filmed for the screen by Emmy Award winner Lonny Price for Ellen M. Krass Productions with Serpent Productions and Shout! Factory, in association with the BBC.
Gypsy is considered by many to be the greatest of Broadway musicals, with book by Arthur Laurents, music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The score features such musical theater classics as “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “Some People,” “Let Me Entertain You,” and “Rose’s Turn.”
Suggested by the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, Gypsy tells the true story of ambitious showbiz mother Mama Rose, who treks across America with her daughters Baby June and Louise in search of success with their homespun vaudeville act. As times change, Mama Rose is forced to accept the demise of vaudeville and the rise of burlesque, as well as her daughters’ quest for autonomy.
Gypsy was directed by Jonathan Kent with choreography by Stephen Mear, scenic and costume design by Anthony Ward, lighting design by Mark Henderson, sound design by Paul Groothuis, and musical direction and new orchestrations by Nicholas Skilbeck.
