The Great Gatsby

07:30 pm to 09:45 pm
Ivy Tech Waldron Auditorium

Cardinal Stage presents “The Great Gatsby’ September 5-22 at the Ivy Tech Waldron Auditorium. The breathtaking glamour and decadent excess of the Jazz Age come to the stage in Simon Levy’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel. Nick Carraway finds himself drawn into the dazzling world of flappers, bootleggers, and a mysterious man named Jay Gatsby. But beneath all the romance is a harsh reality that cannot be escaped, no matter how hard Gatsby may struggle to row against the current of his past. This production is in partnership with the IU College of Arts & Sciences 2019 Themester.
“A beautifully crafted interpretation of the 1925 novel…This is indeed a grand GATSBY.” ~ London Free Press
