For Immediate Release

March 2013   The Hudson Theatre Ensemble of Hoboken, NJ is proud to  present the New Jersey premiere of award-winning playwright Simon Levy’s stage  adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s masterpiece The Great Gatsby,  Authorized and Granted Exclusive Rights by The Fitzgerald Estate.  Set on  Long Island in 1922 at a time when gin was the national drink and sex the  national obsession, there is no question that Levy’s remarkable stage adaptation  of the Great American Novel has all the elements of Great Theater.    Levy’s adaptation has provoked historic excitement and is nothing less than  magnificent in its powerful realization of the acclaimed novel’s Roaring  Twenties, Jazz Age world of Prohibition, wealth, privilege, social worlds  colliding, and the irreconcilable contradictions within the American Dream and  ultimately about the ideal quest itself.

This production of The Great Gatsby is absolutely worth seeing even  for those not familiar with the novel.   Though the book most  definitely deserves reading, think of this play and our New Jersey premiere as  joyfully demonstrating the strengths that the stage brings to storytelling, even  and especially to a masterwork like Fitzgerald’s novel.   The  Great Gatsby is not easily forgotten.
