Everything's Coming Up Roses This Time for Me and You!
19 February 2017 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

Imelda Staunton did a terrific job in playing Mama Rose in the classic and timeless "Gypsy" musical production on stage at the Savoy Theatre in London, England. I can see why she won an Olivier Award and was awarded the CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire). She'll be Dame Imelda one day. Her performance is heartbreaking and complex of emotion. Every musical theatre student should watch this production as an assignment. Her performance displayed her range of talent, singing and acting as well. Until I saw this version on DVD, I never thought of her as a musical theatrical actress. I was surely wrong. Imelda is a scene stealer but she has an excellent supporting cast like Peter Davison (Herbie) and Lara Pulver (Louise). This production might be entirely filmed for stage. For those of us who can't afford the theatre or get to London to see the production, the DVD is the next best thing for an audience. More people will see this on DVD than live on stage.
