About Gatz

Ahead of the centennial of The Great Gatsby’s publication and more than a decade after its original Obie and Lortel Award-winning engagements, Elevator Repair Service’s GATZ returns to The Public for a thrilling and final New York City encore of the acclaimed production.

One morning in the office of a mysterious small business, an employee finds a copy of The Great Gatsby in the clutter of 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. Told over a single 6 1/2-hour production created by Elevator Repair Service and directed by Elevator Repair Service Artistic Director John Collins, GATZ is not a retelling of the Gatsby story but an enactment of the entire novel.

Fitzgerald’s American masterpiece is delivered word for word, startlingly brought to life by a low- rent office staff amid their inscrutable business operations. Scott Shepherd reprises his award-winning role as the Narrator and is joined by most of the original New York cast. An event not to be missed and a last chance to see this theatrical and literary tour de force by one of the American theater’s most exciting and inventive companies.

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, of course!, Epic, Intense

See it if This is a transformative experience. I have read Gatsby about 3 times but this was different. Scott Shepherd's performance was incredible!

Don’t see it if The drawback is that you need a whole day to experience this work. If you will not want to sit for so many hours it may not be for you.

Transformative, Life changing, Masterful, Profound, Ambitious

See it if This eight-hour extravaganza is unlike anything I've ever experienced. The play is acted around/through a reading of the novel Great Gatsby.

Don’t see it if You don't like experimental, or outside the box theater or don't like the novel The Great​ Gatsby.

Hearing every word of "the great gatsby" narrated & acted must-see event for those who appreciate "so we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past" and all the words before that

See it if magic; persuasive acting, fine set/lighting/sound effects bring 2 life book’s anguished love story & ribald satire where Am dream goes awry

Don’t see it if you are not prepared for a two part marathon that lasts over 6 hours; but if you hang in, you’ll be taken on almost a spiritual journey
