Elevator Repair Service

Elevator Repair Service
Gatz

“The most remarkable achievement in theater not only of this year but also of this decade...” —The New York Times

“The show that made Gatsby even greater...Brilliantly enthralling.” —The Times (London)

Los Angeles premiere

Hailed by critics around the world as a major theatrical event of historic proportions, Gatz is a bravura feat celebrated for its singular and dazzling literary alchemy. 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?
