The Great Gatsby

November 2 - December 10, 2006

Bagley Wright Theater

A green light shines at the end of Daisy Buchanan’s pier in East Egg, Long Island, in full view of the West Egg home of Nick Carraway across the sound. In the hot summer of 1922, Nick observes the elaborate parties of his neighbor, the infamous and illusive Jay Gatsby. In this languid atmosphere of wealth and privilege, Nick is charmed by Gatsby’s power to transform his dreams into reality, and becomes his ally in rekindling a relationship with Daisy. In Fitzgerald’s opulent, iconic, carefree lifestyle of The Jazz Age, there lurks a materialistic center, making The Great Gatsby’s sharp depiction of the “American Dream” resonate anew for each generation. In this first authorized adaptation since 1926, Simon Levy brings the humor, irony, pathos and loveliness of this American classic to the stage.
