Tacoma Little Theatre to Present THE GREAT GATSBY, 1/23-2/8
Tacoma Little Theatre takes you back to The Jazz Age with its production of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel, THE GREAT GATSBY, with direction by Dale Westgaard.
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. Navigate the languid atmosphere of wealth and privilege with Nick Carraway as he observes the glittering, elaborate parties of his neighbor, the infamous and illusive Jay Gatsby. The Great Gatsby's sharp depiction of the "American Dream" resonates anew for each generation.
This production stars Rodman Bolek as Jay Gatsby, Veronica Tuttell as Daisy Buchanan, Kelly Mackay as Nick Carraway, Jacob Tice as Tom Buchanan, and Ana Bury as Jordan Baker. Also featured are Stacia Russell, Mason Quinn, Kathleen Martin, Ron Bauer, George McClure, Kaylie Erin Rainer, Kerry Bringman, Stassi Reynolds, and James Fesalbon.
The Great Gatsby will run Friday, January 23, 2015 until Sunday, February 8, 2015. Friday and Saturday showings are at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:00pm. This show is recommended for ages 12 and up.
