TWB: The hardest part of creating The Great Gatsby was...
S. Webre: ...the fact that there was no existing musical score, which serves as a defacto libretto.

TWB: The part of Gatsby I am most proud of is...
S. Webre: ...the way in which the whole team of collaborators—dancers, artistic staff, administrative staff, designers, musicians, and especially composer Billy Novick and TWB Music Director Scott Speck were on the same wavelength throughout.

TWB: The best compliment I got from a patron was...
S. Webre:...after seeing the premiere, Washington Life’s Kevin Chaffee quipped “Septime, you really managed a lot of elements –you had everything but the elephant in there!”

TWB: I hate it when I hear...
S.Webre:...”I never read the book…”

TWB: I identify most with...
S. Webre: ...Nick Carraway....with a little Myrtle thrown in there.

TWB: The funniest part of this process was...
S. Webre: Making the sofa dance with its zany, Chaplinesque acrobatics!

TWB: If patrons walk away with anything from Gatsby, I hope it will be...
S. Webre: ...inspired by this compelling tale.

TWB: When Gatsby is all over, I will celebrate by...
S. Webre:...throwing back a few Mexican beers and having fun with friends.
