The Vegetable – F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Farce about Politics – Streaming Event – (November 2nd, 2020)
November 2 @ 6:30 pm
NextStage Theatre Company presents a streaming performance of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s only full-length play (in three acts), The Vegetable on Monday, November 2nd, 2020. This nearly one hundred year old farce, is the story of an inexperienced, narcissistic, and delusional man who becomes President and nearly deconstructs the entire country by appointing unfit family members to office and making rash decisions to protect his power. Some work just stands the test of time, yeah? According to research done by NextStage, this rare work has only been produced a few times since its 1929 closing on Broadway. NextStage is breathing new life into this piece on Election Night-Eve as they virtually present it in a visual-radio-play format with original piano music interludes and a 1920’s virtual costume contest.
Written by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Adapted and Directed by Tyler Phillips
Starring: Chase Chavez, Taylor Congdon, Georgia Waehler, Nick Freedson, Ben Connor
Monday, November 2nd, 2020 – 6:30pm – Streaming Event
