“Alexander Wright’s staging of F.Scott Fitzgerald’s brilliant novel about the sad gay young things of 1920s America and the decline of the American Dream was London’s longest running immersive show prior to lockdown. Now it’s back, its been reimagined for our Covid-safe times as a masked ball thrown by the elusive Jay Gatsby himself. When I saw it some time ago, it felt more like a party than theatre and in need of a bit more substance and less champagne, but it was certainly fun. So, with any luck it will have evolved and matured and should offer theatre-goers the immersive theatre experience they have lacked over the last few months.”
Jay Gatsby invites you to one of his infamous large parties. Re-imagined and re-set to meet covid-19 secure guidelines, the champagne flows and as the drama unfolds the man himself will be the perfect host. As invites go, this is the hottest in town.
A hedonistic world of red hot rhythms, bootleg liquor and pure jazz age self-indulgence awaits. Don your masquerade, dress to the nines and immerse yourself in this heart racing adaption of F Scott Fitzgerald’s seminal tale of the Roaring Twenties.
