Ruby in the Dust’s popular musical reworking of The Great Gatsby officially opens today for a limited run at the Union Theatre. Here, Musical Theatre Review’s official photographer Roy Tan offers a fantastic selection of exclusive production images.
Adapted from F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic Jazz Age romantic tragedy, Gatsby features a book by Linnie Reedman and music and lyrics by Joe Evans.
The production, which has already attracted some press attention for the casting of Reality TV stalwart Ferne McCann who will make her stage debut in a supporting role, plays the Southwark venue until 30 April.
The full cast includes Paul DuBois, Nicholas Fagerberg, Joanna Brown, Blair Robertson, James Rallinson, Kate Marlais, Emma Whittaker, Katie Beudert, Lewis Rae, Mark Townsend, Zed Josef and Samantha Louise Clark. The music is performed by members of the cast.
The show was first presented in 2012 and again in 2013.
