The Wolf of Wall Street is being made into an immersive production in London, set in ’90s New York and telling the story of Jordan Belfort, played by Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s 2013 movie.
The location and full casting have now been revealed for the experience, with The Wolf of Wall Street taking over a building situated close to Liverpool Street at 5-15 Sun Street, London.

Audiences will be immersed in a world of greed, power and extravagance, experiencing both the highs and lows of Belfort’s millionaire lifestyle.
Adapted and directed by Alexander Wright, The Wolf of Wall Street’s familiar plot is as follows: “Jordan Belfort. Stock-market millionaire at 26. Federal convict at 36. By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could.
“Stratton Oakmont is hiring. The FBI is closing in. You’re either with him or you’re against him.”
The cast, comprised of 16 people, will play characters from Belfort’s memoirs, including Stratton Oakmont staff and the FBI.
