Travel back to the Jazz Age with this acclaimed adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's literary classic The Great Gatsby. In this portrait of Roaring '20s decadence, Nick Carraway, a young newcomer to Long Island, is drawn into a world of obsession, greed and danger when he falls in with Jay Gatsby, an enigmatic millionaire pursuing the married Daisy Buchanan. Simon Levy's adaptation was a Finalist for the PEN Award in Drama and is "nothing less than magnificent, a powerful realization of Fitzgerald's novel" (the Post-Bulletin). Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
This sparkling romantic music and dance extravaganza follows the jazzy whirl of New York high society in the Roaring '20s. Popular but penniless Susy and her friend Nick devise a get-rich-quick scheme to marry and live off their wedding presents while they help one another look for suitable millionaires. The plan works perfectly… until they fall in love. Based on Edith Wharton’s 1922 novel, this delightful Jazz Age romp asks the age-old question: marry for love… or for the love of money?
