Tony Award nominees Jeremy Jordan and Eva Noblezada have been cast in the new musical adaptation of The Great Gatsby, which begins performances at the Broadway Theatre on March 29 ahead of an April 25 opening.

They will play the lead roles of Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan in this stage adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s seminal novel, which is set in the Roaring Twenties and follows millionaire Gatsby, who will stop at nothing in the pursuit of the lost love of his youth, Daisy.

The show, which has a book by Kait Kerrigan and music and lyrics by Tony Award nominees Nathan Tysen and Jason Howland, transfers to Broadway after a sold-out world premiere at Paper Mill Playhouse in fall 2023.

The rest of the creative team includes Marc Bruni (director), Dominique Kelley (choreographer), Paul Tate de Poo III (scenic and projection designer), Tony Award winner Linda Cho (costume designer), Cory Pattak (lighting designer), Tony Award winner Brian Ronan (sound designer), Charles G. LaPointe and Rachael Geier (hair and wig designers), Jason Howland (arrangements and orchestrations), Kim Scharnberg (orchestrations), Daniel Edmonds (music director), and Grammy Award winner Billy Jay Stein (music producer).

On the announcement, lead producer of The Great Gatsby Chunsoo Shin said: “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, glamorous, and resplendent production on Broadway — that is becoming even more refined, resonant, and expressive, following our world-premiere production.”
