The Great Gatsby by The National Players
In the Jazz Age of New York City, luxury is everything, and and nobody is more luxurious than the Long Island gentleman with the mansion on the bay. He throws tremendous, barn-burning parties. He owns nothing but the newest and best, from his hydroplane to the very clothes he wears. Nobody knows where he came from, and everybody knows his name—but who is this Jay Gatsby? And what does he see in the dark across the water that would so entice him to sacrifice everything he has?
This fast-paced adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic novel springs to life as the National Players introduce a world of excess at the tipping point: the guests can dance all night, but what happens when the sun comes up? A talkback with the company follows the performance.
