Tom Buchanan in a Tutu?

Yes…Steve and are just got tickets to the ballet version of The Great Gatsby, playing at the Kennedy Center in late February.

Here’s the description of the program:

Return to the splendor of the Jazz Age and the frivolity of the Roaring Twenties as Septime Webre re-imagines F. Scott Fitzgerald's passionate, thought-provoking, and complex The Great Gatsby. Set to a score composed by musicologist and early 20th century music expert Billy Novick, the artists of The Washington Ballet bring to life this rich allegory of obsession, wealth, and influence.

And here’s ticket information. Personally, I’m especially looking forward to seeing the party scene in dance!
