Review: NOVEMBER 1918: THE GREAT WAR AND THE GREAT GATSBY Unique at Carnegie Hall

"...a magnificent piece of historical documentation brought to life by state-of-the-art visual technology. Showing events of over one hundred years ago, combined with live music dug deep into your soul. I am sure there was not a dry eye left in the house by the end of this one-of-a-kind, deeply moving work of art."

Carnegie delight

WE feel "Saturday Night Live's" Stefon would have enjoyed this. New York's hottest club was Carnegie Hall and its "November 1918: The Great War and the Great Gatsby." This place had everything: "Hamilton" conductor Ian Weinberger, a decorated homing pigeon name Cher Ami and a 58-piece orchestra playing Stevie Wonder songs. Historian John Monsky put together the multimedia spectacular. Katie Couric (above) and Christine Ebersole caught the one-night-only performance. How exclusive!
