The Great Gatsby
Scott Palmer and Bag & Baggage Theatre take on their most ambitious production yet with the Oregon premiere of Simon Levy’s adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel (the only one approved by the Fitzgerald estate). Yes, Leo's turn in the over the top movie adaptation might've left a sour taste in your mouth, but don't blame B&B. They're serving up the postwar ennui of the Jazz Age with their own glitz and glitter, not to mention some technical feats. Temporary fly system? Check. Thirty-five foot “boat dock” extending from the stage into the middle of the theatre? Check. Colorful projections including moving images of the text from Fitzgerald’s novel onto the actors and the big screen, reconnecting the theatre production back to the original text in a very compelling, visual way? Check. Local favorite Ty Boice starring? Check. If you liked the book, don't miss this play.
