Play Synopsis: The breathtaking glamour and decadent world of the Jazz Age comes to the stage in this faithful adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s great American classic. The Great Gatsby follows Jay Gatsby, a self-made man who single-mindedly pursues one desire: to be reunited with the love of his life, the beautiful but elusive Daisy Buchanan. Our story is told through the eyes of Nick Carraway, a young newcomer to Long Island who is drawn into this careless world of wealth, obsession, and greed. Gatsby’s quest eventually leads him briefly back into the arms of his beloved but then to a tragic end. Viewing a stage production of a classic piece of literature allows characters and dialogue to come alive in ways not possible on the page. Seeing this production is a once in a lifetime opportunity. We obtained the rights from the Fitzgerald Foundation to perform this script for this one limited run, so you won’t be able to see this production anywhere else.

Adaptation and performance rights for The Great Gatsby secured through arrangement with Harold Ober Associates Incorporated.

Play Synopsis: If you have seen Director Leslie Ann Ross’ clever adaptations of ‘MacBeth‘ and ‘A Midsummer Nights Dream’, you know that she loves Shakespeare, and you will love this adaptation of the classic tragedy of ‘Romeo and Juliet’. We have the feuding noble families of Capulet and Montague, a Capulet young lady, a Montague youth, a upcoming arranged marriage, instant young love, their secret marriage by a Friar who sees the possibility of ending the age-old feud, and a faked death to avoid the arranged marriage. What could possibly go wrong? Even if you know, don’t miss this delightful production.
