Kick up your heels while a live combo plays at a glittering Jazz Age party setting the tone for this story of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald and his beautiful but troubled wife Zelda soon join the soiree in Farewell, Fitzgerald. Played by Kurt Gravenhorst, the author of The Great Gatsby then addresses his audience on his own while he muses about his sometimes glamorous, often complicated life, not to mention his hopes for a return to literary glory via the novel he's been working on. The evening concludes with a conversation among the audience, the show's star and composer Jeremy Harris. Written by Gravenhorst, Farewell, Fitzgerald is a production of The Tabard Theatre Company.

After so many years of wanting to see Brian's one man show, I finally did. I found it to be very insightful and entertaining. I can see why his book is now in colleges and universities across America. I would recommend this show to anyone who has not yet seen i,t as it has taken a long time to get it to San Jose. The venue is great, not a bad seat in the place.
