Relive the Glamour of the Great Gatsby

Relive the Glamour of the Great Gatsby

A Christmas party like never before
Tickets on sale next week

Mention the name Gatsby and it conjures images of parties, excesses of every kind, glamour, glitz and a society fuelled by impulse and desire.

It was 1920s New York and Gatsby’s parties were legendary.

That legend continues this Christmas in New Zealand with a cabaret show that recreates the hedonism of the Gatsby era with “wild parties” in venues around New Zealand. A sumptuous cabaret inspired by the great American novel of 1925.

The Great Gatsby Christmas Party Revue will feature – comedy, singing, dancing and performing songs reminiscent of the 1920s when everyone was makin’ whoopee, dancing the Charleston or doing the Boogie Woogie! Book a party, dress up and celebrate like it's 1925! Discounted tickets for groups of 6 or more.

The master of ceremonies will be actor and all round funnyman Rutene Spooner – himself often mistaken for Gatsby!!

Earn the “legend’s badge” at your office or social club with a night out at The Great Gatsby Christmas Party Revue. Dining and antipasto packages will be available at selected venues.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
