“Director Michael Cotey certainly knows his Fitzgerald. His production of The Great Gatsby carries both the airy sumptuousness and grimy suppleness of Jazz age New York and can distill the hopeless quest of Jay Gatsby as narrated by his hapless chronicler Nick Carraway to the stage with panache. Scenic Designer Lauren Nichols shrinks or expands the stage with a divine disdain for physics, while lighting designer Alex Ridgers not only brings brilliance but sneaks that pesky green light into surprising places.

Kemper Corner, Ben Kemper
