London’s most successful immersive theatre experience The Great Gatsby has extended its booking period into October 2022. Tickets for the new booking period are now on sale.
The Great Gatsby – forced to close in March 2020 by the pandemic – was one of the first shows to re-open that year under socially distanced conditions and with changes to the show to incorporate extra safety measures in October, before its forced closure in November due to the subsequent lockdown.
It reopened in September 2021 back to its original pre-pandemic format, and with the venue at full capacity, and continuing to follow all current government guidelines and Covid safety measures.
An immersive 1920’s style Jazz party at the home of Jay Gatsby, F Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic character from his seminal tale, this immersive adaptation of the The Great Gatsby is London’s longest running immersive theatre show.
First conceived in 2015 when director Alexander Wright and producer Brian Hook were running The Fleeting Arms – a pop arts and community pub in an abandoned building in York, the show then ran in York in 2016 with a parallel production in Sheffield, and was produced by the Guild of Misrule . The immersive show first came to London as part of VAULT Festival in 2017 and sold out before the show opened. It ran at Gatsby’s Drugstore in London SE1 before moving to its current home Immersive LDN in Mayfair.
The London cast features Oliver Towse plays ‘Gatsby’, with Lucinda Turner as ‘Daisy’, Hugh Stubbins as ‘Nick’, Jermaine Dominique as ‘Tom’,Steve McCourt as ‘George Wilson’, Jessica Hern as ‘Jordan’, Aminita Francis as ‘Myrtle Wilson’, Alex Wingfield as ‘Rosy Rosenthal’, Aimee Barrett as ‘Lucille’ and Greg Fossard as ‘Joey’.
The Great Gatsby is booking until 30 October 2022 at Immersive LDN.
