West End stars will unite for an online concert revival of Gatsby A Musical at Cadogan Hall.
The piece will be streaming online between Friday, 12 February and Sunday, 14 February 2021.
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), will take on the famed roles of Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan.
The new concert production also 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).
Further casting includes Blake Patrick Anderson (RENT; Be More Chill), Chanice Alexander Burnett (Motown the Musical; Beautiful – the Carol King Musical), Lauren Chinery, Robert Grose, Oliver Mawdsley, Tristan Pegg and Marc Rhys.
Tickets are available online here priced from £15 with VIP tickets available, offering the opportunity to be whisked backstage to see the cast preparing for the show.
The digital concert rendition of Gatsby A Musical follows sell-out live success and an Offie nomination for Best New Musical.
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.
Writer and Director, Linnie Reedman said: "Gatsby has become, over the years, synonymous with glamour, glitz and parties. What a lot of people forget, however, is that the ‘Roaring Twenties’ came immediately after a World War.
"And a global pandemic. It was a period of upheaval and great change. I think the story of a crushed American dream, juxtaposed against individual hope and optimism is essentially pertinent today."
Gatsby has previously been staged at the Crazy Coqs, the King’s Head, Riverside Studios, the Leicester Square Theatre, Theatre Royal Windsor and The Other Palace.
