Lil G: A Gatsby Remix
In this contemporary reimagining of The Great Gatsby, a rapper named Lil G gathers a group of rappers and influencers on the dance floor in 2023 New Orleans and searches for his true love. Meanwhile, a hurricane is soon to touch down outside. Will privilege distract these celebrities from impending disaster? Were they ever privileged to begin with?
This play contained violence, sexual themes, haze, strobe, strong language, blackfishing, and loud music.
In advance of the performance, we'd like to invite you to visit our Virtual Lobby to learn more about the production and our team.
