The Great Gatsby
March 28, 2015 8:00 PM $36, $32, $25
Sponsored by First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Greene County
One of the great cautionary tales about the American Dream, The Great Gatsby is now brought to the stage by Montana Repertory Theatre. Known for its compelling productions of great American stories that penetrate to the core of human experience—Death of a Salesman, To Kill A Mockingbird, The Miracle Worker—the troupe’s Gatsby will convince you that Simon Levy’s masterful adaptation captures, perhaps better than all movies of varying artistic merit, the elusive magic of Fitzgerald’s slim novel. It’s all here: the beautiful people, the decadence, the idealism--and the darkest fate. While continuing to tell the “great American Stories”, the Montana Repertory Theatre approaches The Great Gatsbywith all the honor and care a great work of art deserves as they bring the beauty and poetry of this masterpiece, living and breathing on stage to a new generation of theatre-goers.
