Gypsy has opened and has extended to 28th November 2015!
Gypsy began previews at the Savoy Theatre from the 28th March 2015. The show had its press night on the 15th April 2015. The Savoy theatre is located just off The Strand and is part of the luxury Savoy Hotel.
The Savoy Theatre was built in 1881 but burnt down in 1993, so the auditorium itself is relatively new. When the theatre was restored in the 1990’s it was built to evoke a 1930’s Art Deco vibe. Due to the age of the current auditorium, sight lines in this theatre are pretty good, with no obstructive ornate pillars like in some West End venues.
There are approximately 1150 seats in the Savoy, spread across three levels; The Stalls, Dress Circle and Upper Circle. The Dress Circle box is accessible for those with disabilities. See below for our seating tips.
5 Star Reviews For Gypsy The Musical London
Gypsy has enjoyed 5 star reviews from pretty much every critic who came to see the show! See what the press had to say below!
“Every facet of the character [Momma Rose] is caught by Imelda Staunton who gives one of the greatest performances I’ve ever seen in musical theatre.” The Guardian
“Go.” The Telegraph.
“Oh Imelda Staunton. She really is the finest actress of our time. The vim and verve she brings to the role of Momma Rose will be remembered for years to come. Her ability to transition from stagey mom to crumbling matriarch is award worthy.” Official Theatre
“Unmissable.” Time Out
“If you like musical theatre, I urge you to see this stunning revival of one of the greatest Broadway musicals. If you don’t like musical theatre, see it anyway.” The Times
As with all theatre, there are cheaper seats and more expensive seats. The more expensive seats have the best view of the stage and are situated around the centre of the Stalls and the Centre of the Dress Circle. Cheaper seats can be found at the back of the Upper Circle, but these can often feel a touch far back.
Seats in the middle of rows B-E of the Upper Circle are good value and boast clear views of the stage. Watch out for the safety rail in row A though, which is not suitable for Children, very short people and those who require decent leg room.
