Description

St. Paul’s original “IT” couple — F. Scott Fitzgerald and his muse Zelda — were glittering emblems of the Jazz Age, living a life filled with parties, fashion, and tabloid headlines. This new jazz musical, which premiered Off-Broadway, tells the tale of these storied lovers, capturing both the joy of their romance and their struggles for artistic identity and fame.
