As previously reported by West End Frame, Peter Davison is joining the cast as Herbie.
They join the previously announced Imelda Staunton as the indomitable Momma Rose in Jonathan Kent’s Chichester Festival Theatre production. Final casting will be announced shortly.
Gypsy 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 after a sell-out season in Hampstead.
The production opens at the Savoy Theatre on 15th April 2015 (previews from 28th March).
