The Broadway-bound show held a special reception at New York City's Plaza Hotel.

The Broadway transfer of the new musical The Great Gatsby, which premiered at Paper Mill Playhouse in fall 2023, is just around the corner. Previews begin March 29 at the Broadway Theatre, with an official opening set for April 25. 

As previously reported, the cast will be led by Jeremy Jordan (Newsies, Smash) as Jay Gatsby and Tony nominee Eva Noblezada (Hadestown, Miss Saigon) as Daisy Buchanan, each reprising their roles from the Paper Mill production. See the duo performing the number "My Green Light" at a special reception at New York City's Plaza Hotel in the video above, which was provided by the show. Jason Howland provided the piano accompaniment to the song, which is the closer for the musical's first act. 

If you would like to see the full song, see the video below, taken by Playbill at the event. 

Jordan and Noblezada will be joined by Noah J. Ricketts (Frozen) as Nick Carraway, Samantha Pauly (Six) as Jordan Baker, Sara Chase (The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) as Myrtle Wilson, John Zdrojeski (Good Night Oscar) as Tom Buchanan, Paul Whitty (Come From Away, Once) as George Wilson, and Eric Anderson (Moulin Rouge! The Musical) as Wolfsheim. Ricketts, Pauly, Chase, Zdrojeski, and Whitty will reprise the roles they originated at Paper Mill.

Complete casting will be announced at a later date.

The Great Gatsby features music and lyrics by Tony nominees Nathan Tysen (Paradise Square) and Jason Howland (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical) and a book by Jonathan Larson Grant winner Kait Kerrigan (The Mad Ones). Marc Bruni (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical) again directs with choreography by Dominique Kelley (Mariah’s Magical Christmas Special).

Set in the Roaring '20s, the musical follows eccentric millionaire Jay Gatsby, who will stop at nothing in his tragic pursuit of Daisy Buchanan, a wealthy young woman whom he loved in his youth. To make such a classic story fresh for the stage, Kerrigan previously said she wanted to take a closer look at the female characters.
