The carefree swirl of the Jazz Age…and the tragic romance of Dick and Nicole Diver. Fitzgerald's "favorite novel" is the story of their passionate love affair and their life as the perfect Jazz Age couple. He's an idealistic American psychiatrist, full of charm and a promising career. She's an extraordinarily beautiful and wealthy mental patient being treated at a Swiss sanitarium. They fall in love and marry. Unfortunately, her shameful and tragic past continually forces him to be both doctor and husband. He can't. And though they love each other, he eventually has an affair with a Hollywood starlet, dooming their marriage and setting the stage for his disintegration and loss of self. Surrounding them are a host of expatriate Americans and glamorous Europeans Dick has "collected."
"A magical, exciting theatre experience. Golden is the glamor, bittersweet is the romance, and potent is the magic of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic jazz age novel…Brought lyrically and luminously—and yes, tenderly—to the stage in this sensitive dramatization by Simon Levy." —Drama-Logue. "A perfect production.Top notch. Magic." —BackStage. "Lavish. Ambitious. Lovely." —NY Times. "Sheer perfection. A brilliant adaptation of a classic literary piece." —Santa Monica Evening Outlook. "An outstanding evening of entertainment. An absolute knockout. [Simon Levy] has created a compelling stage version." —Daily Breeze. "Beautiful. A gorgeous moving play." —Tolucan.
