The Great Gatsby will be on his way to the (BAC) later this month. That's when Raconteur Radio will be holding a staged radio drama, with a nod to the famous F. Scott Fitzgerald novel.
The program, hosted by Dr. Stephen Kaplan, is part of the “Taste of the Arts” Lecture Series. It will be held on Thursday, September 27, at 7:30 pm.
Raconteur Radio - an offshoot of the old Raconteur bookstore in Metuchen - will perform a radio-style stage production of Fitzgerald's classic work and in honor of his 116th birthday. The production will include a dazzling array of costumes, lighting, sound effects and musica linterludes, featuring the talents of Rac Rad Regulars Carlyle Owens,Laurence Mintz, Francesca Tedeschi, Michael Jarmus, and Alex Dawson.
The production will put a vintage spin on Gatsby, with period costumes, theatrical lighting, and sound effects that hearken back to classic entertainment. These elements, in combination with the architecturalbackdrop supplied by Woodbridge’s historic Barron Arts Center, promises to transport the audience directly to the heart of the Roaring Twenties.
