theatre - The Vintage Guide To London
It’s 1922 and we welcome you to prohibition Wilton’s for the stage adaptation of The Great Gatsby. Surely there is no better place to experience the adaptation produced by the Wilton’s Team and directed by Peter Joucla. Expect late night foxtrots, moonshine in teapots, pearls and flappers, bootleggers and millionaires.
Few classic Hollywood films have made a successful transition to the West End stage, but Singin’ in the Rain – showing now at the Palace Theatre – not only stays true to the original film but so perfectly conveys its feel-good, foot-tapping joy that you almost wish for at least a bit of drizzle as you step out from the theatre after the show.
