John Collins and Scott Shepherd, in conversation with KPFA associate theater critic C. S. Soong.
John Collins directs and Scott Shepherd performs in “Gatz,” now on stage at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. In “Gatz,” an office worker comes across a copy of “The Great Gatsby” and begins reading it aloud; over time, his co-workers associate themselves with the novel’s characters. “Gatz” was created by Elevator Repair Service; Collins is the theatre ensemble’s artistic director and Shepherd has performed with ERS since 1994. “Gatz” runs through March 1.
Berkeley Repertory Theatre is located at 2025 Addison Street in Berkeley.
