NEW BLOCK OF TICKETS
ON SALE FOR
THE GREAT GATSBY
NOW THROUGH FEBRUARY 2025

(New York, NY – June 20, 2024) Award-winning Korean Producer Chunsoo Shin is thrilled to announce a new block of tickets is now on sale for the hit Broadway musical adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's landmark novel The Great Gatsby, starring Tony Award-nominated Broadway sensations Jeremy Jordan (Newsies, "Smash") and Eva Noblezada (Hadestown, Miss Saigon ). Tickets are now available through February 23, 2025.

Hailed by Entertainment Weekly as "A Great, Big Broadway extravaganza that explodes with life and energy," F. Scott Fitzgerald's timeless novel has landed on the Broadway musical stage for the first time ever in The Great Gatsby , a new hit show transporting sold-out audiences on "a glitzy, glamorous romp through the Roaring 20s." 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 comes to life on the greatest American stage, with grand, Tony Award-winning production design befitting the 21st century. Through an electrifying jazz and pop-infused score, "led by vocal-powerhouse stars, Jeremy Jordan and Eva Noblezada , The Great Gatsby is an extravagant, crowd-pleasing spectacle, where a cascade of visual splendor showers the eye." (Washington Post) The musical features music & lyrics by Tony Award nominees Jason Howland (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, Little Women) and Nathan Tysen (Paradise Square), 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 Great Gatsby began previews on Friday, March 29, 2024, and opened on Thursday, April 25, 2024, at The Broadway Theatre (53rd & Broadway).

As recently announced, today also marks the launch of the show's monthly event series celebrating the "Roaring 20s" with Gatsby-esque festivities from the 20th–29th of every month. Audience members will have access delightful surprises, giveaways, and contests, inside and outside of the theater, which in its inaugural month culminates with the release of The Great Gatsby (Original Broadway Cast Recording) on June 28.

The world premiere engagement of The Great Gatsby was the highest grossing show in Paper Mill Playhouse history. The production, which ran October 12–November 12, 2023, also broke the theater's all-time record for ticket sales in a single day, and sold out the entire run before its very first performance. The New York Times hailed the production as "dazzling, lush, and bewitching... Jeremy Jordan's Gatsby is grounded and debonair, which makes it all the more thrilling when his voice scurries up to a delicious falsetto. Eva Noblezada captures Daisy's longing with an emotive and powerful voice." The musical was lauded by The Star Ledger as, "a triumph! Smartly written, sharply directed, expertly performed, and teeming with excitement and drama, this musical adaptation explodes off the stage!" New York Stage Review declared Jordan and Noblezada, "simply sensational," and Broadway World said, "this exceptional new musical is destined to become a treasured addition to American musical theatre."

One of the most popular novels of all time, The Great Gatsby is a New York Times and USA Today perennial best seller. It has sold over 30 million copies worldwide since its release in 1925 and continues to sell over 500,000 per year. The novel has been translated into over 42 different languages, and has been adapted into television shows, radio plays, video games, and multiple films – including the acclaimed Baz Luhrmann feature film starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Chunsoo Shin, the lead producer of The Great Gatsby musical, says, "I am passionate about producing this show because it provides a modern audience with the true essence of idealism that is expressed eloquently in the novel and now on stage. The Great Gatsby is a masterpiece that grows and changes as it's experienced by each new generation, in every culture, and people — and yet, still maintains its uniqueness, with its fascinating characters that burst with vitality. The entire team behind The Great Gatsby is beyond thrilled to present this timeless, glamourous, and resplendent production on Broadway — that is becoming even more refined, resonant, and expressive, following our world premiere production."
