Excellent show where you feel your in 1920s. Really enjoyed dressing in 1920s clothes. Fantastic actors and actresses who really involve you in the show. Set and the different rooms are great and definately give you the 1920s feel.

Booked the show last minute as a friend was in town. We did not know what to expect but overall was a great experience. This is a style of play that we have never seen before. It's really not like sitting and watching, you are part of it. Somehow, I would have liked it to be even more immersive! Perfect to discover a new theatre style and/or make a surprise to a friend without saying what it is about. Even if not everyone does it, it worth dressing up 20's style to reinforce the effect of the play. Recommend to go!

It was an immersive masterpiece with great actors and well thought-out side plots. Definitely something to see if you liked the movie

This is a fun combination of a play and a party. The friendly actors do a great job of staying in character from the doorstep and the guest list to the end of the evening. Set in a large central warehouse room, with smaller rooms off to the sides, the audience is free to mill around, as there are no assigned seats. With a selection of strong cocktails at the bar and most of the audience in passable period party dress, my guest and I had a great time being ushered from room to room to witness scenes. The actors bring audience members into the action in a minor way, but it’s easy to blend in if you have stage fright. I would suggest you spend a few minutes practicing the Charleston before you go, if you really want to make the most of the evening.

Remember to watch the movie or read the book beforehand so you have it fresh in your mind...and of course, get dressed up and participate!

Great armosphere, shame the bar was not open throughout the performance and drinks being collected off the tables when not finished.

Be part of the action, taking place in a set of rooms representing Gatsby's house where big parties take place. Order your drink from the bar, dance with the actors, go around the rooms to see how things evolve in front of your eyes. Participate in the dialogs and actions - not to be scared, usually only need to answer with a yes or not, pretending you are one of Gatsby's invitees to the party.Great night out, would recommend it!

I really didn't feel like going, and I knew I couldn't drink that night, so the gin went to waste, but it TOTALLY turned me around - it was really fun and i LOVED the interaction, the acting was great, it really felt immersive! if you are someone into improv you would love it!

Beyond thrilled with our choice. We booked impromptu on London Box office not quite knowing what the ‘immersive theatre’ would entail. We loved the story line and all the little story offshoots. Acting was fantastic and the actors stuck around to chat to our 16 year old fan girl daughters. Brilliant and highly recommended.

Honestly didn't read the small print about this show. Booked it online last minute and thought my mother and I were going to be seated to watch the play. We were surprised to be standing and walking around, almost participants in Gastby's party. It was a little disconcerting at first but we soon got into it. Characters of Tom and Nick were brilliant and the whole experience was very engaging. Only regret was that we had a lot of shopping bags from our day around London and they were difficult to carry from set to set. Be prepared and embrace this unusual but well executed show.
