West Hudson Arts & Theater Company presents "The Great Gatsby: A Live Radio Play"

(WEST HUDSON, NJ) -- The West Hudson Arts & Theater Co (WHATCo) has announced the cast for The Great Gatsby: A Live Radio Play, adapted for the stage by Joe Landry from the Novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald featuring original music by Kevin Connors. Performances begin May 19 at WHATCo’s new venue at 15 Frank E. Rodgers Blvd. South, Harrison NJ (the former Holy Cross School.)

Directed by Beatriz Esteban-Messina with Musical Direction by Scott Burzynski; Stage Managers are Marisa Cicchino Friedman and Deborah Vartan. The cast includes Christopher Tully as Nick Carraway; Jason Simmons as Jay Gatsby ( performing 5/19-21); Byron Hagan as Jay Gatsby (performing 5/26-27); Janna Epstein as Daisy Buchanan; Tara Spinelli as Jordan Baker; and Nelson DePasquale as Tom Buchanan. With Richard Dwyer as the Announcer and Owl Eyes; George Rex as Meyer Wolfsheim; Joseph Jones as George Wilson; Matt Masiello as Michaelis and Klipspringer; Carlos Caban DeJesus as Policeman, Gatsby's butler, Train conductor; Jack Pignatello as Nick's father, Partygoer 2, Henry C. Gatz; Miranda Madrazo as Lana Sherwood and Buchanan's maid; Jessica Jones as Myrtle, Partygoer #1, well-dressed lady, Gatsby's gardener; Cynthia Ross as Catherine and Sally Applewhite; and Roman Koster as the Foley artist.

In this spirited adaptation of The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s beloved classic comes to life as a 1940s radio broadcast. The ensemble brings more than two dozen characters from the novel to the stage of the WHATCo radio station for a live broadcast, punctuated by 40s-era commercials. A story of triumph and tragedy that reflects the decadence of the Jazz Age and the perils of the American Dream. Still, ain’t we got fun?!?

Performances are May 19, 20, 26, and 27 at 7:30pm and May 21 at 2:00pm. Visit www.whatconj.org for additional information.
