Arizona Theatre Company


F. Scott Fitzgerald's

The Great Gatsby

Adapted by Simon Levy
Directed by Stephen Wrentmore

Considered by many to be the Great American Novel, The Great Gatsby is at once titillating, 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. Experience the languid atmosphere of wealth and privilege with Nick Carraway as he observes the glittering, elaborate parties of his neighbor, the infamous and elusive 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.
