Jay Gatsby invites you to one of his infamous large parties. Reimagined and reset to meet COVIDSecure guidelines, the champagne continues to flow and as the drama unfolds the man himself will be the perfect host. As invites go, this is the hottest in town.
London’s longest running immersive smash hit, The Great Gatsby, will be reopening its doors from September with a re-imagined and re-set the production as an Art Deco Masquerade Ball, with audience members wearing compulsory face coverings and gloves to complement their fabulous attire. The production will re-open at its home, Immersive|LDN, just off Bond Street.
The capacity of the venue will be significantly reduced to help patrons – coming as individuals or in household groups – to keep a safe distance from others; and the nature of the show means that audience members can choose where they stand and move throughout the performance, naturally enabling social distancing. The show content is being altered and updated to avoid any activity that would be considered high risk, and the actors will be further trained to keep groups of audience following the story, whilst remaining at a safe distance.
The venue and production will be in full compliance with government COVID-Secure guidelines, temperature checks will be undertaken for audience and staff on arrival, ,the venue will be deep cleaned before and after every performance, bar equipment sterilised, and hand sanitisers will be available throughout the venue.
The Producers are also planning for the eventuality that the show can’t proceed, or individual patrons can’t attend, and are offering a no-questions-asked exchange policy, so that patrons can receive replacement tickets to an alternative performance, or a voucher, even if they simply change their mind about attending. These Covid-Secure policies will be under continuous review and are by no means exhaustive - any additional measures recommended will be adopted as appropriate.
