Perth crooner Jake Dennis is Mr Gatsby
F Scott Fitzgerald's novel The Great Gatsby (1925), later adapted into popular movies starring Robert Redford (1974) and recently Leonardo DiCaprio (2013), is told from the point of view of Gatsby's one true friend Nick Carraway.

In this musical adaptation, Jake Dennis tells the story embodying a coloured Gatsby; a musician from the poor side of town who competes with elitist Tom Buchanan, a wealthy womaniser, for the love of the beautiful Daisy in this dramatic reimagining of Fitzgerald's novel.

Performing songs from the 1910s to 2010s, this theatrical show features talented local actors Sjaan Lucas (Daisy Faye), Fleur Pereira (Hattie Berry), Samuel Barbas (Tom Buchanan), as well as Jake Dennis (Jay Gatsby) and the Mint Jazz Band.

For those embracing their inner Daisy, prizes for the best dressed lady and the coolest dressed cat each night!

This is not just a jazz, swing, and blues cabaret. Gatsby's Cabaret includes modern songs, much like Baz Buhrmann's highly popular musical films so you might be surprised at the songs played.

Performing songs that people love to hear, storytelling, and truly embodying characters and songs with drama and charisma that's entertainment and that's what I'm about," says Jake Dennis.

Look forward to a night of exciting entertainment featuring songs of love and longing. This suave gentleman will entertain you, his party guests, with Gatsby's story of social ascendancy, race, rivalry, and love.

"Main man, Jake Dennis, has a fluid, almost sensual voice, that lends itself well to the hit tunes of well-loved crooners Buble and Sinatra, and the three piece band was everything you would expect to see of an underground jazz band. His voice is worth hearing." - Out In Perth
