Immersive Everywhere are pleased to announce a further extension for the critically acclaimed immersive hit show, The Great Gatsby, with tickets on sale now until 29 August 2021.
The Great Gatsby, created and directed by Alexander Wright- which holds the record as the UK’s longest running immersive production– re-opened under socially distanced conditions at the beginning of October at West End venue IMMERSIVE | LDN, but – due to London being placed in Tier 3 restrictions – the show has once more been forced to close its doors, with no further performances until London enters Tier 2 or below.
The production will be taking a month’s hiatus in March whilst the building prepares for the opening of Doctor Who: Time Fracture, opening at Immersive LDN on 21st April 2021.
Over the first lockdown, Olivier Award winning producers Louis Hartshorn and Brian Hook re-imagined and re-set the production as an Art Deco Masquerade Ball, with audience members wearing compulsory face coverings to complement their fabulous attire.
Louis Hartshorn and Brian Hook said “100 years ago our society came out of a pandemic and into the “Roaring ’20s”, so it feels fitting that The Great Gatsby should be leading the fightback for the creative sector after Covid-19. Immersive|LDN also hosts Doctor Who in an adjoining building, making it the world’s first ever multiplex immersive theatre facility. We’re very proud of the experience we are giving to our audiences, and of the fact that these productions provide stable employment for well over 100 people, including many freelancers, at a challenging time.”.”
Jay Gatsby invites you to one of his infamous large parties. Re-imagined and re-set to meet covid-19 secure guidelines, the champagne flows and as the drama unfolds the man himself will be the perfect host. As invites go, this is the hottest in town.
A hedonistic world of red-hot rhythms, bootleg liquor and pure jazz age self-indulgence awaits. Dress to the nines and immerse yourself in this heart racing adaption of F Scott Fitzgerald’s seminal tale of the Roaring Twenties.
Craig Hamilton currently plays ‘Gatsby’, alongside Lucinda Turner as ‘Daisy’, James Lawrence as ‘Nick’, Dean Graham as ‘Tom’, Lucas Jones as ‘George’, Ivy Corbin as ‘Jordan’, MJ Lee as ‘Myrtle’, Hugh Stubbins as ‘Rosy Rosenthal’, Aimee Barrett as ‘Lucille’ and Alex Wingfield as ‘Joey’.
In order to ensure full compliance with government Covid-Secure guidelines at IMMERSIVE LDN, the capacity of the venue was significantly reduced to help patrons – coming as individuals or in household groups – to keep a safe distance from others; and the nature of the show naturally enables social distancing. The show content was altered and updated to avoid any activity that would be considered high risk, and the actors trained to keep groups of audience following the story, whilst remaining at a safe distance. Temperature checks are undertaken for audience and staff on arrival, and the venue is deep cleaned after every performance, bar equipment sterilised, and hand sanitisers available throughout the venue.
IMMERSIVE LDN has also been granted the use of Society of London Theatre & UK Theatre’s See It Safely mark. The mark certifies that the venue is complying with the latest Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, to ensure the safety of all staff and audiences.
