The first cast images have been released for The Wolf of Wall Street, the world premiere immersive production which brings to life the highs and lows of the infamous ‘90s New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort. The Wolf of Wall Street is based on Belfort’s memoirs, as depicted by Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s movie of the same name, and features a 16-strong cast who will play multiple characters from Stratton Oakmont stockbroker start-ups to the FBI, plunging audiences into a world of greed, power and excess. The production will open at 5-15 Sun Street, Central London and will be staged across four floors and 25 rooms. It previews from 19 September 2019, with opening night for press on 4 October and is adapted and directed by Alexander Wright (The Great Gatsby – the UK’s longest running immersive show).
