Fresh off the smash hit, “39 Steps,” the Arizona Theater Company is ready to please audiences again with the introduction of “The Great Gatsby,” which opened in Tucson on Feb. 25, and will play through March 17.

Considered by many to be the Great American Novel, “The Great Gatsby” is at once titillating, fascinating and shocking in its portrayal of The Jazz Age that was soon to disappear from the American landscape.

In this first authorized adaptation since 1926, Simon Levy brings the humor, irony, pathos and loveliness of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s American classic to the stage.

The production is directed by Stephen Wrentmore, and many of the stars are from Tucson.

The Theatre is located at the Temple Music and Art at 330 S. Scott Ave. in Tucson.

For tickets, call 622-2823.
