When we started Irons in the Fire in 2017, one of the first shows we knew we wanted to develop was Christie Baugher and Danny Mefford’s contemporary, two-hander musical The Fitzgeralds of St. Paul. First of all, the music is so darn good, but it was also such a unique perspective on one of American culture’s most famous couples. Now, it’s heading to Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater for a one-night-only concert performance. We’ll see you there!

A Little About The Show
Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s love takes center stage in this contemporary musical about two of American culture’s most timeless figures – and their tumultuous, storied marriage that seems ripped from the cover of today’s tabloids. Passed through the prism of Zelda -- one of history’s most complicated and misunderstood artists –The Fitzgeralds of St. Paul is the alcohol-soaked retelling of their infamous romance, giving audiences an imagined behind-the-scenes glimpse into their glamorous lifestyle, their mutually destructive co-dependency, their obsessions and their struggles with mental health.
Written by Christie Baugher
Directed by Danny Mefford
