Beautiful and Damned - 2004 - West End

Beautiful and Damned, set in the 1920s, tells the tragic story of Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald. The glamorous and fashionable couple, successful young author and stylish young wife, with their high spending, high living lifestyle, became the envy of the world. Scott christened the period “The Jazz Age,” and Zelda was its high priestess. However, behind the dazzling and elegant facade, a darker story awaits to be told.
