The Great Gatsby is a roaring success
Our most successful spring season yet ended on a high when we performed The Great Gatsby to sold-out houses at Sadler's Wells, London. The audience included showbiz stars such as Sir Ben Kingsley, Gok Wan, Darcey Bussell and Eddie Redmayne as well as our Royal Patron HRH The Earl of Wessex KG GCVO. The Great Gatsby has generated £1.24 million in ticket sales and has been seen by over 50,000 people.
‘It's beautifully staged and choreographed. It brings the essence of those years and Fitzgerald to life. It's beautiful.”
Sir Ben Kingsley
