'Gatz': Steve Martin, Frances McDormand, Mike Daisey Promote Public Theater 2012 Performances (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"Gatz," the 7-hour word for word performance of "The Great Gatsby" that made everyone remember "books" 2 years ago is back. "Oh yeah, remember books?" went The New York Times' review of the Elevator Repair Service production. "They're so cool!" The nostalgia may have been unwarranted, but we're having a hard time not feeling it ourselves watching the effectively-scored promo videos for "Gatz"s return to The Public Theater. Steve Martin, Frances McDormand, Mike Daisey, Suzan-Lori Parks (who makes wonderful faces) and a whole crew of substitute Nick Carraways read the novel's first and final lovely chapters to Wrap It Up music from the twenties, and gah. Books, amirite? Check the videos out below (you can also find them at ERS' site), and head over to The Public Theater if you're looking for tickets. The show runs from March 14 to May 6.
