The power of Fitzgerald’s narrative and the sheer beauty of his prose are captured in this haunting and heartfelt snapshot of the roaring twenties.  Much more than simply a story of lost love, The Great Gatsby recreates the Jazz Age world of youth, wealth, privilege, and reckless abandon.  Montana Rep reintroduces this classic, bringing Fitzgerald’s masterpiece to a new generation of theatergoers.

The performance will feature a free pre-show lecture in Babka Theatre from 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., where UD Professor of English Jonathan Barz will share background information on F. Scott Fitzgerald and The Great Gatsby.  The pre-show session closes with a question-and-answer period.
