“Gatsby,” adapted by Simon Levy and directed by David Esbjornson (“The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?”), bows in July on the Guthrie’s new thrust stage.

The other world preem, “The Falls,” starts perfs in August in the Guthrie’s studio space. The latest play by “Never Gonna Dance” book writer Jeffrey Hatcher is inspired by Thornton Wilder’s “The Long Christmas Dinner.”
