Jodie Steele and Liam Doyle join ‘Gatsby: A Musical Concert’ cast
The production has also been postponed by a fortnight.
UPDATE: Gatsby: A Musical will receive an encore stream from 11 - 14 March.
Last month, a series of Gatsby: A Musical Concerts were announced at Cadogan Hall. Ahead of performances, new casting has been revealed, as well as a new schedule of dates.
Jodie Steele will now play Daisy Buchanan in Gatsby: A Musical Concert. Steele’s West End credits include Heathers at Theatre Royal Haymarket and The War of the Worlds at the Dominion Theatre. Liam Doyle will now play Tom Buchanan in the concerts, with Joe Frost taking over the role of George Wilson.
The new actors join the cast, following scheduling conflicts of Charlotte Wakefield, Marc Antolin and Marc Rhys.
Casting is completed by the previously announced Spandau Ballet member Ross William Wilding as Jay Gatsby, whose West End credits include Million Dollar Quartet. Emma Williams plays Myrtle Wilson, joined by Blake Patrick Anderson, Chanice Alexander-Burnett, Lauren Chinery, Robert Grose, Oliver Mawdsley, and Tristan Pegg.
Gatsby: A Musical Concert will also take place later in February 2021. Performance dates are now from 26 - 28 February, a fortnight later than previously announced.
