‘The Great Gatsby’ sets final West End performances
London’s longest-running immersive show will close in January 2023.
The Great Gatsby started out in 2015 at The Fleeting Arms in York. The production premiered in London at the 2017 VAULT Festival, before moving to Gatsby’s Drugstore in SE1, and then Gatsby’s Mansion in 2019. The Great Gatsby is the longest-running immersive show in London.
“Gatsby has had a triumphant run over the last seven years and has been enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of audience members who have dressed up, danced and raised good cheer with us. It's been a constant source of pride, enjoyment and light. It’s the thing I’m proudest of in my career,” said producer Brian Hook.
Set in 1920s New York, The Great Gatsby follows the lives of wealthy New Yorkers as they congregate at one of Jay Gatsby's infamous parties. The Great Gatsby show is based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel of the same name.
