The Great Gatsby in Prague!

Time travel to the 1920s with Le Royal’s new show

Saturday 29 November will see the premiere of Le Royal’s new show, The Great Gatsby, inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 novel of the same name – a cautionary tale of the decadence and excess of the Roaring Twenties.

Taking an interpretive approach to the classic novel, which Australian director Baz Luhrman adapted into an Oscar-winning film starring Leonardo DiCaprio in 2013, Le Royal’s production of The Great Gatsby is not a direct re-telling of the novel, but rather a reference to and evocation of the definitive zeitgeist of the 1920s – its jazz music, prohibition, speakeasies and the opulent and hedonistic lifestyle of its titular character Jay Gatsby.

Music-wise, Le Royal’s show is thoroughly modern and features a rendition of American singer Fergie’s A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got), which also featured in the 2013 film, alongside a Beyoncé song and electro-swing music.

With its small ten person cast – which includes talented singer Uliana, three dancing couples, a tap dancer, an acrobat and a master of ceremonies – Le Royal’s production of The Great Gatsby is a truly interactive theatrical experience which sees the cast intermingle with the audience throughout the performance.

The ideal venue for a re-imagining of the Roaring Twenties, Le Royal is a stunning Vinohrady-based theatre, cinema and café originally constructed in 1929 which retains many of its original Art Deco design features today.

The Great Gatsby show will open on Saturday 29 November and the 60 minute performance will be followed by an after party continuing until 2 am emceed by DJ Electro Swing. The production will be shown every Saturday.

Ticket prices range from 590 Kč for pre-booked seats to 1595 Kč for a VIP ticket which includes a half bottle of Moët and Chandon champagne. To purchase tickets, click here.
