F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby is considered to be one of the great American novels, and Fitzgerald's best work. It's no surprise then that it has inspired adaptations across film, TV, music and more from its release in the 20s to the current day. Here as we build up to the World Première of our own adaptation of this classic novel we look back (and forwards) to some of the most noteable adaptations.
On Wednesday 20 February we previewed scenes from The Great Gatsby at a launch at Sadler's Wells, London.
