GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) The age of jazz and glamour comes alive on stage as Grand Rapids Civic Theatre opens its landmark 90th season with an adaptation of a classic American novel.

“The Great Gatsby” is adapted from the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The performance is the only stage play authorized by the Fitzgerald Estate. Set in a world of prohibition, wealth, privilege, colliding social worlds, and the irreconcilable contradictions, The Great Gatsby is a quest for the American Dream.

The show is directed by the Civic Theatre’s Executive and Artistic Director, Bruce Tinker. It stars David Cobb as Nick Carraway, Audrey Filson as Daisy Buchanan, and Brian Peerbolt as Jay Gatsby.

“The Great Gatsby” is September 11 through 27. Ticket prices range from $16 to $28 and are available online or by calling (616) 222-6650.
