The Great Gatsby, NTPA Plano

Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, passionately pursues the elusive Daisy Buchanan. Nick Carraway, a young newcomer to Long Island, is drawn into their world of obsession, greed and danger. The breathtaking glamour and decadent excess of the Jazz Age come to the stage in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel, and in Simon Levy’s adaptation, approved by the Fitzgerald Estate.

“Somewhere out there, Jay Gatsby is smiling one of those enigmatic smiles, with everything and nothing behind it. ‘Yes, old sport,’ Gatsby is saying, ‘that’s about right. That’s about right.’ Surely, that smiling sign of approval would be Gatsby’s suitably understated take on Simon Levy’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby…a beautifully crafted interpretation of the 1925 novel which defined the Jazz Age…This is indeed a grand GATSBY.” —London Free Press. “Sweeping…excellent…Levy’s adaptation wisely anchors itself around the first-person account of narrator Nick Carraway…a satisfying conclusion…affecting.” —Variety.
