About this show

One morning in the low-rent office of a mysterious small business, an employee finds a ragged old copy of The Great Gatsby in the clutter of his desk and starts to read it out loud...and he doesn't stop. The lines of reality begin to blur and suddenly, it is unclear whether he's reading the book or the book is reading him. In this brilliant invocation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's epic American novel, Elevator Repair Service doesn't stop either. This is no Broadway play. This is no Andy Kauffman stunt. This is a full reading of The Great Gatsby in a way it has never been done before. If you think you've already experienced the timeless tale of the quintessential West Egger, and the rise and fall of the roaring twenties, you'd better think again, old sport.
