Scott Fitzgerald's story about obsession, wealth, and excess in the Roaring Twenties is brought to life through Webre's brilliant choreography and iconic period music from America's jazz age, including Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, and Tommy Dorsey, plus original music by Billy Novick. Don't miss this evening of explosive and swooning dance accompanied by live jazz that will blow the roof off this gin joint!
