1920s dress encouraged, dancing shoes required!

If you were rich the 1920s - a famously wild era of bootleg liquor, red hot jazz, rampant drug taking, boozing and dancing yourself into a state of exhaustion - were a veritable 24/7/365 pleasuredome. This is the scene set by this thrilling adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s best selling jazz-age classic, a place where the cocktails flow, the music deafens and Jay Gatsby’s infamous parties are in full, utterly outrageous swing.

This exceptional show brought the house down at the Vault Festival. Over two and half hours it reveals one of the most powerfully affecting stories of the last century, exploring the enigmatic Jay Gatsby's extraordinarily powerful appeal to the naïve young man who was so very fascinated by him.

The show is beautifully presented by The Guild Of Misrule, The Immersive Ensemble and Perrier-Jouët, an outstanding stage production that has already proved a massive hit with audiences. Add input from theatre luminaries Secret Cinema, Les Enfant Terribles, The Flanagan Collective and Belt Up Theatre, and this is a party you won't want to miss.

The West End transfer venue is being kept a close-held secret until nearer the time, but we do know that the producers are going to encourage audiences to wear 1920s costumes. The show is already a legend in the making for faithfully recreating the sights, sounds and feel of this unique period, following on from the Belle Epoque, as experienced through the admiring eyes of Nick Carraway as he gradually discovers first hand the less than glittering underbelly of a society obsessed with wealth, status, excess and glitz.

The musical has been beautifully adapted by Stephen Sharkey, whose accolades include The May Queen and The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui. There's loads of live music supporting a truly inspiring theatrical experience, and the reviews so far are excellent. It's being called “beguiling and captivating”, “Riveting and worth travelling far to see”, and a piece of “Truly electrifying theatre”.

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.

Theatrical suprise

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.
