The Great Gatsby, sponsored by Lake Michigan Credit Union, is a Contemporary Stage adaptation of the classic Jazz-Era American novel penned by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Adapted for the stage by Simon Levy, this adaptation was first presented at the Guthrie Theatre in 2006. It features much of Fitzgerald's prized language with the decadence of the 1920s. Performances run Wednesdays - Sundays, October 2 - 27, 2019 in Blackburn Hall. The dominant themes of love, desire, and obsession prevail over Fitzgerald's characters rich with hope and dreams positioned within the Art Deco stage design, which sets the stage artfully for their decadent world in the Jazz Era. A special Red Carpet Party at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 2, 2019, takes place on The Baker Stage on Opening Night before the performance at 7:30 p.m. with live music and complimentary refreshments. Tickets are $40 and are available to the public on Tuesday, September 3, 2019, at the Box Office or NaplesPlayers.org.
