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.

Presented by Contemporary Asian Theater Scene and Asian American Theater Companyl, TeleMongol uses the sketches to tell the story of AHOLE-TV (Asia Home of Language Entertainment), a fictional cable network with a mission to create programming by and for the Asian Pacific American community.
The show takes a satirical look at both the behind-the-scenes politicking at the station and the programs chosen to air. Skewering everything from the issues faced by ethnic media to well-known icons like American Idol reject William Hung and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il, TeleMongol promises to be an irreverent look at contemporary Asian American pop culture.
