The Guild of Misrule and Immersive Everywhere’s critically acclaimed THE GREAT GATSBY, created and
directed by Alexander Wright- which had previously set a record as the UK’s longest running immersive
production - is planning to re-open at West End venue IMMERSIVE | LDN on THURSDAY 1 OCTOBER 2020.
As with all UK theatres and productions, the show was forced to close down in March, due to the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent UK shutdown.
Olivier Award winning producers Louis Hartshorn and Brian Hook have re-imagined and re-set the production as an Art Deco Masquerade Ball, with audience members wearing compulsory face coverings to complement their fabulous attire.
The capacity of the venue will be significantly reduced to help patrons – coming as individuals or in household groups – to keep a safe distance from others; and the nature of the show means that audience members can choose where they stand and move throughout the performance, naturally enabling social distancing.
The show content is being altered and updated to avoid any activity that would be considered high risk, and the actors will be further trained to keep groups of audience following the story, whilst remaining at a safe distance.

What impresses about the production is mostly all that jazz, rather than the climax and fall of the charming man at its centre
