The Great Gatsby is coming to Abu Dhabi with one dramatic difference

Yes, you read that right. Bill Bragin, first ever Executive Artistic Director of The Arts Center at New York University Abu Dhabi, isn’t about to stop pushing boundaries at his job title. This September, he’s bringing New York Theatre company Elevator Repair Service’s ground-breaking eight-hour production of Gatz to the emirate.

Directed by John Collins, the play – which brings the full text of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s glittering, glamorous novel to life – will be presented at Black Box, NYU Abu Dhabi’s 250-seater performance space, in four acts with two intervals and a break for dinner.

The Grazia girls have our fringed flapper dresses at the ready. Will the see you there?

Gatz comes to NYU Abu Dhabi from Friday 21 and  Saturday 22 September at 3-11pm, Monday 24 September at 3-11pm at The Black Box, NYU, Abu Dhabi. For more info, visit nyuad-artscenter.org
