Further casting announced for West End transfer of Gypsy

Further casting has been announced for the West End transfer of Gypsy. 

It was previously announced that the cast would be led by Imelda Staunton as Momma Rose, Lara Pulver as Louise (both of whom reprise their roles) and Peter Davison as Herbie.

It has been confirmed that Gemma Sutton will reprise her performance as June.

The cast will also include: Dan Burton as Tulsa, Billy Hartman as Uncle Jocko, Jack Chissick as Mr Goldstone, Anita Louise Combe as Tessie Tura, Harry Dickman as Pop, Lucinda Shaw as Mother, Roger Dipper as L.A., Louise Gold as Mazeppa, Clare Halse as Majorie May, Tom Hodgkins as Mr Weber, Kieran Jae as Yonkers, Julie Legrand as Electra, Danielle Morris as Geraldine, Luke Street as Little Rock, Damien Poole as Kansas, Lauren Hall as Delores and Natalie Woods as Agnes. 

Ensemble members include: Liz Ewing, Lauren Ingram, Tom Murphy and Phillip Catchpole. The casting of the roles of Baby June and Baby Louise will be announced shortly.

The production opens at the Savoy Theatre on 15th April 2015 (previews from 28th March).

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.
