Universal Pictures have confirmed that Chichester Festival Theatre's production of Gypsy will be available on DVD and digital download from 28 November.

Filmed in front of an audience during its critically acclaimed run at the Savoy Theatre, Gypsy features Imelda Staunton in her Olivier Award-winning performance as Momma Rose. The cast also includes Peter Davison, Lara Pulver and Gemma Sutton.

Directed by Jonathan Kent and with choreography from Stephen Mear, Gypsy is based on the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, a famous 1950s striptease artist.

With lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and music by Jule Styne, the score features classic songs including "Let Me Entertain You", "Rose's Turn" and "Everything's Coming Up Roses"
