Producers Michael Harrison and David Ian have announced that Jonathan Kent's production of Gypsy starring Imelda Staunton has broken the all-time box office record at the Savoy Theatre, taking £408,300 for performances ending 25th April 2015.
Harrison and Ian said: “We are thrilled that this amazing record has been achieved in the 1089 seat Savoy Theatre and are delighted that we have been able to extend our run through November this year.”
Kent’s production originally opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre in October last year with the West End transfer opening earlier this month. Gypsy recently extended booking at the Savoy Theatre to 28th November 2015.
The show stars Staunton as Momma Rose, Lara Pulver as Louise, Peter Davison as Herbie, Gemma Sutton as June and Dan Burton as Tulsa.
Gypsy tells the true story of ambitious showbiz mother Rose, who treks across America with her daughters Baby June and Louise in search of success with their homespun vaudeville act. As times change, Rose is forced to accept the demise of vaudeville and the rise of burlesque, as well as her daughters’ quest for autonomy.
