‘If you can’t go to the Speakeasy darling, have the Speakeasy come to you.’ (Zelda Fitzgerald, probably)
West End stars unite for an online concert of Gatsby – A Musical at Cadogan Hall
Following sell-out live success and an Offie nomination for Best New Musical, this captivating, socially-distanced revival will be filmed in the historic Cadogan Hall and made available to stream online from Friday 12 to Sunday 14 February 2021.
The new concert production stars leading West End talent including four-time Olivier Award nominee Emma Williams (Mrs Henderson Presents; Zorro), and Mark Antolin (Little Shop of Horrors; Flying Lovers of Vitebsk). Former Spandau Ballet frontman Ross William Wild (Elvis Presley in Million Dollar Quartet) and Olivier nominated actress Charlotte Wakefield (Spring Awakening; The Sound of Music) take on the famed roles of Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan, with 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, Oliver Mawdsley, Robert Grose, Tristan Pegg and Marc Rhys.
If you’re excited by the stellar line-up you can grab a VIP ticket and be whisked backstage to see the cast preparing for the show.
Adapted by director Linnie Reedman, and with music and lyrics by Joe Evans, 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.
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.
