The Great Gatsby musical, King's Head Theatre, London - Telegraph
The Great Gatsby: Music from Baz Luhrmann's Film; Soundtrack album by Various artists; Released: May 6, 2013 () Recorded: 2012–13: Genre
The Great Gatsby Musical is an enjoyable piece of theatre. Linnie Reedman presents F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic American tale of interwar decadence in a delightful flurry of frocks, Charlestons, and mint juleps. Be warned though, this show fillets the tale to its barest bones, and for the audience to keep up with the shows pace, particularly in Act 2, a pre-knowledge of the original story is advised.
What is it about The Great Gatsby this year? Not seen for ages and now we have three versions in a matter of months. Just recently we saw LIFT present Gatz, an eight-hour version by New York's Elevator Repair Service company that acted out F Scott Fitzgerald's cult novel word by word. Later this year comes another film version when Leonardo DiCaprio dons the snazzy suiting. Now we have The Great Gatsby Musical, a world premiere from the Ruby In The Dust company. The adaptation is by Joe Evans and Linnie Reedman, who also directs. Starring as the enigmatic millionaire with a dark secret is Sean Brown, ex of EastEnders, while the role of flapper Daisy is taken by Melissa Sturridge, seen in TV's The Borgias.
