From the Olivier Award-winning producers of The Wolf of Wall Street, London’s longest-running immersive theatre production The Great Gatsby transfers to the heart of the West End just in time to take London into the roaring 20s. Directed by Alexander Wright (The Wolf of Wall Street, Orpheus & Eurydice), The Great Gatsby invites you to Lindy Hop into the life of the mysterious Jay Gatsby.
Don your dancing shoes, put your best 1920s flapper dress on and drink in this heart-racing adaption of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s seminal tale of the Roaring Twenties.
While the champagne flows and the drama unfold in his very private manor, the man himself will be the perfect host. As invites go, this is the hottest in town – why would you want to be anywhere else?
We are happy to announce that despite the Covid-19 outbreak, The Great Gatsby immersive play is set to reopen from 22nd October 2020, as the show’s producers put an enormous effort to arrange the show in adherence to the government social distancing rules, that all guests of Mr. Gatsby must follow.
Face Coverings must always be worn, but they don’t have to be boring. Under the new circumstances the production has been re-invented as an Art Deco Masquerade Ball, so guests are encouraged to be wearing fancy masks/face covering of their choice.
Capacity & Social Distancing
The capacity of the venue will be reduced to keep audience members at a safe distance from one another. Previous in-show activities have also been updated to follow social distancing rules and prevent mixing of the actors with the audience.
Before the show
All participants are asked to familiarise themselves with safety measures and requirements that will be sent to them ahead of the performance. Upon arrival compulsory temperature checks will be made for all audience members and staff. The venue is deeply cleaned before and after every performance.
