With a book by Tony Award winner Wheeler (A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd), music by Pockriss (Earnest in Love) and lyrics by Tony nominee Leigh (Peter Pan, Little Me), Gatsby was originally slated to arrive on Broadway in 1970 but never materialized.
Ben West (How Now Dow Jones, Platinum) directs the concert presentation for UnsungMusicalsCo. Inc., which will be presented at 7 PM and at 10 PM at the Signature Theatre's Peter Norton Space.
The cast includes Matt Cavenaugh (Death Takes a Holiday, West Side Story, Grey Gardens), Jenny Powers (Happiness, Dangerous Beauty), Autumn Hurlbert (Legally Blonde), Megan Sikora (Curtains, How to Succeed...) and Max von Essen (Death Takes a Holiday, Les Miserables).
Songs from the score include "Toute Suite, Old Sport," "Jazz Age," "Myrtle's Parade," "Wish Me," "Somewhere There's a Party" and "The Fellow in the Yellow Duesenberg."
Gatsby has arrangements and musical direction by Fran Minarik.
