Confusing, Disappointing, Slow, Overrated, Intense

See it if Far too intense and interactive. We expected to hear more music and watch the show take place.Not be carted off to different rooms every min

Don't see it if dragged out and quite uncomfortable sometimes, making audience women swept the floor, along with pulling people out who were not dressed up.

Time Out London
September 16th, 2021

London’s longest-running immersive theatre show is a fun night out, but not a lot more than that...really, it’s no more articulate an adaptation than that gif of Leonardo DiCaprio toasting the camera.'

October 22nd, 2020

The return of the hit show is a tonic, but a restricted 'immersive' experience rather hampers the fun...As soon as the show can be restored to full ambulatory glory, I’ll be back like a shot.'

The Guardian (UK)
October 23rd, 2020

A revitalised, socially distanced version of the F Scott Fitzgerald novel keeps the jazz age alive with song, dance and spectacle.'

Revelry and intrigue that leaves you wanting more...in its idiosyncratic way this stylishly inventive entertainment remains true to the spirit of F Scott Fitzgerald’s vision...'

A warm and electric tribute to the book...It's a true achievement to feel the chemistry of a cast whirring into action again.'

London Theatre
October 22nd, 2020

Everything you’d expect from a show set in the 1920s is there: the Charleston, the bob hair cuts, the constant talk about motor cars. But it’s missing the exorbitant lavishness that you get from the original.'
