The Great Gatsby
Wednesday, Mar. 2 / 7:30 pm
Loeb Playhouse

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby remains a vivid account of how, in the absence of true equality, pursuing the “American dream” can lead to devastating effects. Known for their powerful immersion in classic texts, Aquila Theatre brings a relevant reimagination of this classic in which Gatsby is a man of color, setting the stage for themes of class, racism and discrimination to play vividly inside the meaning of the American Dream.

Macbeth
