Editorial Reviews

Review

Playwright Simon Levy does a beautiful job of distilling Fitzgerald's sometimes fussy prose. Levy's combination of narration, dialogue and action delivers most of what is best in the novel…a brilliant distillation. --Seattle Post-Intelligencer

By the end of the evening, there was a longing to see it again. And then again ... This adaptation by Simon Levy clearly understood that Fitzgerald s words are sacred and can t be improved upon. What was added, deleted or changed to adapt the story to the stage was so faithful to Fitzgerald that it became seamless ... Expectations were far exceeded. --The Arizona Daily Star

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. --The London Free Press

About the Author

F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1896, attended Princeton University, and published his first novel, This Side of Paradise, in 1920. That same year he married Zelda Sayre and the couple divided their time between New York, Paris, and the Riviera, becoming a part of the American expatriate circle that included Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, and John Dos Passos. Fitzgerald was a major new literary voice, and his masterpieces include The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby, and Tender Is the Night. He died of a heart attack in 1940 at the age of fourty-four, while working on The Love of the Last Tycoon. For his sharp social insight and breathtaking lyricism, Fitzgerald stands as one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century.

Poor adaptation of the novel. Way too much information/story is changed and that seriously undermines the meanings within the story. Purchased to use in a classroom setting, but put aside when specific parts were missing.
