This was a fantastic production! The two Zeldas on stage at the same time was fascinating---contributing to bipolar personality of Zelda. The set added visual enjoyment. I expected it to be the telling of the book "This Side of Paradise" but it was F. Scott and Zelda's lives. The music added to the Jazz Age mood. We would love to see it again. I wish I recognized more of the many lines that came from his stories.
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. From the world of literature to the glamor of Hollywood, the lives of Zelda and Scott reflected the era during which they lived: highs and lows, boom and bust, a thrilling rise and a devastating crash.
