Based on "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Adapted by Catia
Directed by Leandro Kufa Castro

How far would you go to get what you want?

La Luz Verde is The Great Gatsby, the iconic American Dream story, torn open and marinated. You know Daisy, Myrtle, you know Nick, and perhaps you think you’ve figured out Gatsby. ¿Pero conoces a Flor, Maribel, Nicolás, y a el Gato que vive embrujado por la luz verde? From poor and in love to obsessive and rich, watch as the characters from La Luz Verde find El Gran Sueño Americano, and face the big question, “How far will you go to get what you want?” 

Please Note: La Luz Verde is a Teatro en el Verano production, produced by Rhode Island Latino Arts in association with Trinity Rep. Teatro en el Verano stages free, English-Spanish bilingual productions at various outside venues in Rhode Island. Both English and Spanish speakers can enjoy and understand the production.
