Roy and Edna Disney/CALARTS Theater
Do you consider The Great Gatsby one of your favorite reads? Have you been meaning to catch up on the novel before your English final? Are you excited by incredibly long pieces of theater?
If you answered ‚ÄúYes‚ÄĚ to any of these questions, get yourself a seat for ‚ÄúGatz,‚ÄĚ the eight-hour dramatic reading of F. Scott Fitzgerald‚Äôs great American novel.
And should the performance‚Äôs length deter you, perhaps the two¬†intermissions and one-hour dinner break will make the event more appealing.
