Everyone may be talking about Leonardo DiCaprio this week, but there’s another Jay Gatsby in town and he’s about to take the stage.

Michael Lindall plays the titular role in Ruby in the Dust’s stage version of The Great Gatsby, which opens at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith on Tuesday.

The play’s sold-out run at the King’s Head Theatre last year led to three Off West Award nominations for Best Musical, Best Costume Designer and Best Lighting Designer and it was named Time Out’s Show of the Week.

The production at the Riverside Studios includes several new songs and orchestrations, as well as a new Gatsby in Lindall, who is from Chiswick.

Matilda Sturridge will return for the role of Daisy Buchanan, the woman for whom Gatsby would sacrifice everything for.

The Great Gatsby is adapted by Linnie Reedman with original music and lyrics by Joe Evans.

The production will run in rep from Tuesday, May 21 to Saturday, June 8 with Hutch, about the rise and fall of Leslie ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson, London’s most popular cabaret attraction of the 20s and 30.
