The first-ever "It" couple, Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald came to embody the success, glamor and excess of 1920s America. Their meteoric rise came at a cost, and later in life Zelda was confined to a mental hospital. This Side of Paradise explores the lives and loves of the Fitzgeralds, from their first meeting in 1918 in Montgomery, Alabama, until Scott's death in Hollywood in 1940. The musical puts the primary emphasis on Zelda as she delves into her past during sessions with a young doctor, searching to find the true meaning of her life with Scott, one of America's most celebrated writers.
