Robrt Pela: Review of The Great Gatsby

Theater critic Robrt Pela reviews Arizona Theatre Company’s production of The Great Gatsby.

It takes some real work to make a brilliant and beloved piece of literature into a potboiler, but Arizona Theatre Company has done it. The state theater’s production of The Great Gatsby is elegantly lit on a gorgeous set, and costumed and acted within an inch of its life. It is also a soulless snooze.
