As I mentioned in a recent blog, the New York Writers Group has invited me to their pitch conference next month. My son Scotty insists I come early and see Gatz.
"A theatrical tour de force, Gatz is conceived as a single six-hour production in which an ensemble of 13 actors bring to life every word of The Great Gatsby with no text added and none removed. Gatz is a one-of-a-kind theatrical event defined by its radical commitment to one of the 20th century's greatest novels."
All his friends say it's fabulous. I made him twist my arm. "But Scotty," I said, "it's six hours."
"Is it your favorite novel?" he asked smugly.
"Well, in the top five. Slightly prefer Tender is the Night with Dick Diver and all."
I'm going on November 11th. Scotty has promised to meet me for the dinner intermission.
