Scott Shepherd and Jim Fletcher are set to star as the narrator and title character respectively in Elevator Repair Service's Gatz at American Repertory Theatre January 7 - February 9. John Collins will direct the piece.

Gatz is conceived as a single six-hour production in which the ensemble brings to life every word of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, no text added and none removed. The piece begins one morning in the low-rent office of a mysterious small business when an employee finds a ragged old copy of the book in the clutter of his desk and starts to read it out loud. And doesn't stop.

The company also features Victoria Vazquez (Daisy), Gary Wilmes (Tom), Susie Sokol (Jordan), Sibyl Kempson (Jordan), Laurena Allan (Myrtle), Aaron Landsman (Wilson), Frank Boyd (Wilson), Annie McNamara (Catherine), Kristen Sieh (Catherine), Kate Scelsa (Lucille), Vin Knight (Chester), Mike Iveson (Klipspringer), Ben Williams (Michaelis), and Ross Fletcher (Henry C. Gatz).

The creative team will include Louisa Thompson (scenic design), Mark Barton (lighting design), Colleen Werthmann (costume design), and Ben Williams (sound design).
