West End’s Gypsy With Imelda Staunton Streams Free This Month

This month, the recent West End revival of the hit musical GYPSY will be streaming for free. Based on the true-life memoirs of legendary burlesque entertainer, Gypsy Rose Lee, the musical tells the tale of Momma Rose and her two daughters, Baby June and Louise, trekking across America in their family vaudeville act.

Since Gypsy’s original production in the late '50s, Broadway has seen four revivals - Angela Lansbury (1974), Tyne Daly (1989), Bernadette Peters (2003), and Patti LuPone (2008). The 2015 London revival starred Imelda Staunton and was filmed for release through Ellen M. Krass Productions (Sweeney ToddShe Loves Me).

Here's how to watch London's Gypsy for free now:



The 2015 revival of Gypsy was the first London production to be seen in more than 35 years.

The revival, which was developed in England’s Chichester Festival Theatre, transferred to London's Savoy Theatre where it was filmed live by Emmy Award-winner Lonny Price for Ellen M. Krass Productions.

The London production won five Olivier Awards, including Best Musical Revival, Best Actress in a Musical (Imelda Staunton), and Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Musical (Lara Pulver).

The 2015 production of Gypsy is now available to stream through TUBI TV for the month of November. A direct link to the stream has been added to our list of free streaming musicals.



The West End revival opened at the Savoy Theatre on April 15, 2015 for a limited run. Directed by Jonathan Kent with choreography by Stephen Mear and set and costume design by Anthony Ward, the production starred Imelda Staunton as Rose, Peter Davison as Herbie, and Lara Pulver as Louise.

In his Variety review, Matt Trueman said: "You don’t do “Gypsy” without a Momma Rose to match, and London hasn’t had a Momma Rose in more than 40 years. In that time, it’s gone without one of the great cautionary tales — much more than a mere showbiz myth. So thank goodness Stephen Sondheim figured Imelda Staunton for the role. She makes Rose many things, but above all, shows us that she’s got as much stomach as she has self-delusion. It’s a helluva performance: pitiable, infuriating, even outright objectionable, but somehow still admirable, in spite of it all."
