Even Robin Leach would be gobsmacked by the extravagant excesses of Jay Gatsby, a man so wealthy, so driven and so racked with feeling, the epithet "Great" feels insufficient. Like Hamlet or Holden Caulfield, Gatsby seems to reflect deep truths about what it means to be human. No wonder he keeps popping up, dressed to the nines and totally mysterious, first in F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel, and later in movie adaptations starring Robert Redford (1974) and Leonardo DiCaprio (2013). Now he appears on stage in a sparkling adaptation from Simon Levy. In this portrait of Roaring '20s decadence, Nick Carraway, a young newcomer to Long Island, is drawn into a world of danger when he falls in with Gatsby, an enigmatic millionaire pursuing the married Daisy Buchanan.

We had the BEST time! Excellent performances. Funny show - not too over-the-top, just right. Great bartender and drinks, too! We drove a long way to see this - but it was worth it. Nice area - we'd like to check it out more.
Quotes & Highlights
“Joyful and unashamedly vulgar, Betsy Kelso’s comic fable about women in a Florida trailer park and their no-account men is more fun than a chair-throwing episode of Jerry Springer set to music.” —The New Yorker
“A bright new show … Every song is full of surprises.” —New York Times
“A sparkling, sharp irreverence lights up this musical and makes it one of the most laugh-out loud shows in town.” —Broadway.com
Music and lyrics by David Nehls
Book by Betsy Kelso
Warning: This musical contains tacky outfits, bad wigs, crude language, adultery, strippers, road kill, electrocution and spray cheese. It is, after all, The Great American Trailer Park Musical.
