Today is F. Scott Fitzgerald's birthday, and the theater that bears his namesake is turning 100 years old. To mark the occasion, author Patricia Hampl presents an original production, "The Big Time: F. Scott Fitzgerald." It's a staged storytelling of F. Scott Fitzgerald's vision of making it big.

The performance was created by Hampl and music director Dan Choinard, and it features singer Blake Hazard, who is Fitzgerald's great-grandaughter.
