"Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter--tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther...." In 1922, F. Scott Fitzgerald announced his decision to write "something new--something extraordinary and beautiful and simple." That extraordinary, beautiful, and above all, simple novel became The Great Gatsby, arguably Fitzgerald's finest work and certainly the book for which he is best known. A portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, Gatsby captured the spirit of the author's generation and earned itself a permanent place in American mythology. The Modern Library named it the second best English-language novel of the 20th Century.

Reservations strongly suggested. To reserve a seat simply reply to this notice with your name and the number in your party.

Costumes! Sound FX! Theatrical Lighting! With live musical Jazz Age interlude by vocalist Tedeschi.
