The Great Gatsby

Presented by MSU Department of Theatre

Pasant Theatre

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, adapted for the stage by Simon Levy

In the extravagance and decadence of the roaring twenties, when thoughtless millionaires ruled with impunity, the mysterious Gatsby describes Daisy, his one obsession: “Her voice is full of money.” Passion and greed infect the American dream in this adaptation, where F. Scott Fitzgerald’s voice remains fresh as we watch the rich escape consequences and the power of money to corrupt.
