LA Finally Gets 'Gatz': Love Affair Between Man and Book

On November 28, “Gatz” finally reaches a theater in Los Angeles, seven years after REDCAT first asked to produce the page-by-page retelling on stage of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel “The Great Gatsby.” When “Gatz” played New York’s Public Theater two years ago, Ben Brantley’s review in the New York Times began: “The most compelling love affair being conducted on a New York stage this season isn’t between a man and a woman. (Or a man and a man, a woman and a woman or a boy and a horse.) It is between a man and a book.”
