AMERICA PLAYS! Celebrating Great American Stories presents the Arizona Premiere of F. Scott Fitzgerald's THE GREAT GATSBY. This Arizona Theatre Company performance is adapted by Simon Levy. Held in Tucson: February 25 - March 17, 2012 and in Phoenix: March 22 - April 8, 2012.
Considered by many to be the Great American Novel, The Great Gatsby is at once fascinating and shocking in its portrayal of The Jazz Age that was soon to disappear from the American landscape.
In this first authorized adaptation since 1926, Simon Levy brings the humor, irony, pathos and loveliness of F. Scott Fitzgerald's American classic to the stage. Navigate the languid atmosphere of wealth and privilege with Nick Carraway as he observes the glittering, elaborate parties of his neighbor, the infamous and illusive Jay Gatsby. Part of ATC's AMERICA PLAYS! Celebrating Great American Stories series, The Great Gatsby's sharp depiction of the "American Dream" resonates anew for each generation.
