West End stars unite for online concert revival of Gatsby a Musical at Cadogan Hall

“IF YOU CAN’T GO TO THE SPEAKEASY DARLING, HAVE THE SPEAKEASY COME TO YOU”

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 in a digital concert rendition of Gatsby A Musical, 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 12th to Sunday 14th February 2021.
The new concert production also stars leading West End talent, including four-time Olivier Award nominee Emma Williams (Mrs Henderson Presents; Zorro), Mark Antolin (Little Shop of Horrors; Flying Lovers of Vitebsk) and Blake Patrick Anderson (RENT; Be More Chill).
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 lineup 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.
