Gemma Sutton on Gypsy, Sweet Charity, Legally Blonde & Hairspray
Updated: Sep 24, 2019
Gemma Sutton is currently playing Aladdin at the Hackney Empire, celebrating its 20th anniversary Christmas pantomime from writer and director Susie McKenna and composer Steven Edis.
You may have seen her in Gypsy (with Imelda Staunton), Sweet Charity at the Watermill, The Rink, Strictly Ballroom, Hairspray, Legally Blonde and many other shows.
We had a chat in the green room where everyone who works at the Empire goes to eat and relax. It was a rare one show day, with only a matinee, so Gemma kindly stuck around after the show to talk to me.
Aladdin is running at the Hackney Empire until January 6th 2019.
