New production shots offer a first look at the world premiere musical Gatsby, which opened at Massachusetts' American Repertory Theatre June 5 after beginning previews May 26. The extended run continues through August 3.

Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby (and not to be confused with the separate musical adaptation of that work that recently opened on Broadway), Gatsby features a book by Pulitzer Prize winner Martyna Majok (Cost of Living) and a score by Florence Welch (Florence + The Machine) and Thomas Barlett (Doveman). Rachel Chavkin (Hadestown) is directing.

The cast is led by Isaac Powell as Jay Gatsby, Charlotte MacInnes as Daisy, Ben Levi Ross as Nick, Cory Jeacoma as Tom, Eleri Ward as Jordan, Solea Pfeiffer as Myrtle, Matthew Amira as Wilson, and Adam Grupper as Wolfsheim.

Sam Simahk is the standby for Jay Gatsby, with swings Cameron Burke, Jacob Burns, Mia DeWeese, Paige Krumbach, and Justin Gregory Lopez rounding out the company.

The production features choreography by Sonya Tayeh, music supervision by Kimberly Grigsby (Days of Wine and Roses), music direction by Wiley DeWeese (The Lightning Thief), scenic design by Mimi Lien (The Great Comet), costume design by Sandy Powell (The Young Victoria), lighting design by Alan Edwards (Harry Clark), sound design by Tony Gayle (My Neighbour Totoro), and hair and wig design by Matthew B. Armentrout. Jhanaë Bonnick is production stage manager with Aaron Elgart, Heather Englander, and Alex Luong as assistant stage managers.
