Ruby in the Dust’s acclaimed musical reworking of The Great Gatsby returns to the London stage this month for a limited run at the Arts Theatre.
The exclusive showcase production of Gatsby opens on 26 October and runs on Monday nights until 16 November. Matilda Sturridge, who featured in the show’s premiere at the Kings Head Theatre in 2012, will return to the role of Daisy Buchanan. Other confirmed cast members are Kim Medcalf (Cabaret, TV’s EastEnders) and Ellie Nunn who played the title role in Lady Windermere’s Fan at the Kings Head in 2014. The show will also feature the Benoit Viellefon Orchestra.
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 show was first presented in 2012 and again in 2013.
