Gatz is not a retelling of the The Great Gatsby, but a revelatory, seven-hour enactment of experiencing the novel, as F. Scott Fitzgerald’s American masterpiece is delivered word for word, brought to life with absolutely startling dramatic effect by a cast of 13. The audacious New York theater ensemble Elevator Repair Service opens the drama in the shabby offices of a mysterious small business—where an employee finds a copy of the book on his cluttered desk and, for reasons unknown, begins reading the novel out loud. His coworkers hardly react at first, but, after a series of strange coincidences, they appear to take on the roles of The Great Gatsby’s characters. Is the reader, “Nick”—played by The Wooster Group’s Scott Shepherd, in a superhuman turn—merely reading the novel, or he is being personally transformed by it? X-ALT-DESC:
