Due to popular demand the recent concert revival of Gatsby A Musical will return to streaming for a limited time only. Bringing together an incredible West End cast including Jodie Steele (Heathers; Six The Musical) as Daisy Buchanan, Ross William Wild (Million Dollar Quartet) as Gatsby, and four-time Olivier Award nominee Emma Williams (Mrs Henderson Presents; Zorro) as Myrtle Wilson, the captivating production was filmed at the historic Cadogan Hall for a socially-distanced spectacular.
The company are joined by Liam Doyle (Wicked; Legally Blonde) as Tom Buchannan, Joe Frost (Jersey Boys; An Officer and a Gentleman) as George Wilson, and Blake Patrick Anderson (RENT; Be More Chill) as Nick Carraway. Further casting includes Chanice Alexander-Burnett (Motown the Musical; Beautiful – _the Carol King Musical), Lauren Chinery, Robert Grose, Oliver Mawdsley, and Tristan Pegg.
“Sweeping audiences back to the 1920’s, this concert revival of the musical has a classy cast to bring the characters to life.”
This captivating, socially-distanced concert performance of “Gatsby: A Musical”, filmed in the historic Cadogan Hall, is available to stream online again from Thursday 11th to Sunday 14th March 2021.
“Gatsby: A Musical has an absorbing clarity and something new to say about Fitzgerald's most famous hero, the dark heart of the Roaring Twenties myth and what happened when the party stopped.”
Adapted by director Linnie Reedman, with music and lyrics by Joe Evans, and arranged and orchestrated by Henry Brennan; this unmissable piece brings F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel to life for a semi-staged concert experience. Vibrant characters, popped corks, and infectious rhythms collide with personal conflicts and lost loves in this tragedy of the vanishing jazz era.
“You can’t repeat the past, but you can certainly bring it to life.”
When Daisy Buchanan revisits Jay Gatsby’s mansion seven years after leaving that world behind, she is trying to confront her past by reliving the dream she shared with Gatsby. But where is he? ‘You can’t repeat the past.’
With themes of loss, disappointment and ultimately hope for a better tomorrow, Gatsby is surprisingly resonant with the ‘roaring twenties’ we find ourselves in once again.
“A glamorous and engaging way to experience the story unfolding. Filled with great characterisations and spirited music”
