The Great Gatsby Musical to Open on Broadway

The Great Gatsby is heading to Broadway. The musical adaptation of the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel will open at the Broadway Theatre this spring with performances set to begin Friday, March 29, 2024, ahead of opening Thursday, April 25, 2024. Tickets are now on sale on Broadway Direct.

Direct from a record-shattering, sold-out world premiere at Paper Mill Playhouse last fall, the show features music & lyrics by Tony Award nominees Nathan Tysen (Paradise Square) & Jason Howland (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, Little Women), a book by Jonathan Larson Grant winner Kait Kerrigan (The Mad Ones), and is staged by award-winning director Marc Bruni (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical) and choreographer Dominique Kelley (Mariah’s Magical Christmas Special, Dancing with the Stars”).

The musical will star Tony Award nominees Jeremy Jordan and Eva Noblezada as Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan, respectively, reprising the roles they originated in the Paper Mill Playhouse production.

Complete Broadway casting will be announced at a later date. The Paper Mill Playhouse production featured Sara Chase as Myrtle Wilson, Stanley W. Mathis as Meyer Wolfsheim, Samantha Pauly as Jordan Baker, Noah J. Ricketts as Nick Carraway, Paul Whitty as George Wilson, and John Zdrojeski as Tom Buchanan.

The Broadway premiere of The Great Gatsby will feature scenic & projection design by Paul Tate de Poo III (Spamalot, Tommy at The Kennedy Center), costume design by Tony Award winner Linda Cho (Anastasia, A Gentleman’s Guide…), lighting design by Cory Pattak (Spamalot), sound design by Tony Award winner Brian Ronan (Beautiful, The Book of Mormon), hair & wig design by Drama Desk Award winner Charles G.

Mark Shacket (Funny Girl, Slave Play) of Foresight Theatrical serves as Executive Producer.

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s timeless, seminal novel comes to the Broadway musical stage for the first time ever, in the “dazzling, lush and bewitching production” (New York Times), The Great Gatsby. Transporting audiences to the lavish Roaring Twenties, the story follows eccentric and mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby, who will stop at nothing in the pursuit of the lost love of his youth, Daisy Buchanan. Through its fascinatingly nuanced characters, driven by complex inner lives erupting with extravagance and longing – this epic tale has always been destined to sing. Now, it finally comes to life on the greatest American stage, through an electrifying jazz and pop-infused score, and a grand production befitting the 21st century.

Tickets for The Great Gatsby are now on sale.
