Sag Harbor, NY - November 6, 2018 - Bay Street Theater & Sag Harbor Center for the Arts is pleased to present this year’s Literature Live! production of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, adapted for the stage by Simon Levy, directed by Joe Minutillo and choreographed by Stephanie Vertichio. This is the tenth year of the Literature Live! program.

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic Jazz Age novel, The Great Gatsby, comes to life on Bay Street’s intimate stage. The Roaring 20’s was a time of excess, lavish parties and speakeasies. Jay Gatsby was a secretive and successful kingpin of the elite party circuit, but he had one burning desire and one purpose - to be with Daisy Buchanan, the love of his life from his youth. Set on Long Island in 1922, this compelling drama portrays the human condition of ambition, love, lust, greed, deceit, and most of all the struggles of class and the American Dream.
