About the Show/Event
Information for Gatsby - A Musical at Cadogan Hall, Inner London (Streamed/Broadcast). 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. 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 26 to Sunday 28 February 2021
Approximate runtime 120minutes (including any interval).
