See F. Scott Fitzgerald beloved novel The Great Gatsby adapted for the stage - with every written word included.

This listing is in the past.

James Gatz ? that was really, or at least legally, his name. One morning in the shabby office of a mysterious small business, an employee finds a copy of The Great Gatsby in the clutter on his desk. He starts to read it out loud and doesn't stop. At first his coworkers hardly notice. But after a series of strange coincidences, it's no longer clear whether he's reading the book or the book is transforming him. 8 hours long and with a cast of 13, Gatz is by far the New-York-based Elevator Repair Service Theatre Company's most ambitious endeavor yet -- not a retelling of the Gatsby story but an enactment of the novel itself. Fitzgerald's American masterpiece is delivered word for word, startlingly brought to life by low-rent office staff in the midst of their inscrutable business operations.
