Third London Great Gatsby adaptation announced

A third London stage adaptation of The Great Gatsby has been announced in two days, with a musical version due to open at the King’s Head Theatre in August.

The Great Gatsby Musical will run at the Islington venue from August 7 to September 1. It is directed and adapted by Linnie Reedman with music by Joe Evans.

It follows two already announced non-musical stage versions of the novel – Gatz, which opens at the West End’s Noel Coward Theatre in June and The Great Gatsby, opening at Wilton’s Music Hall on April 25.

Baz Luhrmann is currently filming a new film version of the novel, which is due for release at the end of 2012.
