acclaimed Ruby In The Dust is presenting the world premiere of The Great Gatsby Musical at the King’s Head Theatre – until September 1, 2012.
The Great Gatsby musical part 1
On returning to the UK I took on the exciting challenge of the brooding, muscular 'Tom Buchanan' in the world premiere of THE GREAT GATSBY MUSICAL, opposite Matilda Sturridge then embarked on a UK/Ireland tour playing a personal dream of mine, the Cambridge-educated, charismatic adulterer 'Jerry' in Harold Pinter's masterful 3-hander BETRAYAL. Back where I started with the aristos, I have just finished playing 'Lord Windemere' in a popular revival of LADY WINDEMERE'S FAN by Oscar Wilde at the Kings Head.
The Great Gatsby Musical - Part 1
'Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald' by Theresa Anne Fowler was published a few weeks ago. Two more novels are due to appear soon: 'Beautiful Fools' by R Clifton Spargo, and 'Call me Zelda' by Erika Robuck. (I know nothing of Ms Robuck, but by echoing the opening sentence of 'Moby Dick' – 'Call me Ishmael' – she is obviously taking quite a gamble.) Yet another untitled novel is also in the stocks. 'The Great Gatsby Musical' opened in a London theatre last August and 'Zelda at the Oasis', a new play by P H Lin, premiered in New York in December. Meanwhile, 'Gatz', which involves a group of actors reading the complete text of 'The Great Gatsby' in a single session, has recently packed in audiences around the world including New York, London and Los Angeles.
