Starring Olivier Award- winning actress, Laura Michelle Kelly (Finding Neverland, The King & I tour) and Drew Gehling (Waitress, Jersey Boys), Scott & Zelda: An American Musical is a brand new jazz age musical based on the lives of F.

This new musical tells the story of a young, beautiful southern belle who meets the handsome, twenty-one year old author at a dance on July 4, 1917. Scott & Zelda: An American Musical is ultimately about the two lovers rise, their fall, and their almost divine desire to rise once more ...together.
