Frequently Asked Questions

  • WHAT IS THE GREAT GATSBY ABOUT?

    THE GREAT GATSBY is a new musical adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s beloved novel of wealth, class, and the American Dream during the Roaring Twenties. Set in the summer of 1922, the story follows Nick Carraway, a young man who moves to Long Island, New York, to work in the bonds business and becomes neighbors with Jay Gatsby – an eccentric and mysterious millionaire known for throwing extravagant parties.

    Gatsby throws these bashes as an attempt to win the affection of Daisy Buchanan, Nick’s married cousin who lives across the bay, for whom Gatsby has long harbored a deep love. With dazzling production numbers, soaring melodies, and a cast of Broadway all-stars, THE GREAT GATSBY sheds light on the complexities of social class and the consequences of obsession.

  • WHAT DOES THE GREEN LIGHT REPRESENT?

    The green light is situated at the end of Daisy Buchanan’s dock and is visible from Jay Gatsby’s mansion across the bay. The light is a recurring motif in the musical representing Gatsby’s dream and aspirations, particularly his undying love for Daisy. Always slightly out of reach, the light symbolizes the elusive nature of the American Dream, the hope of a brighter future, and the irretrievable nature of the past.
