This sounds promising, but I wonder if any of the three principal characters can be portrayed as driven enough to work well as a musical’s main protagonist. Who gets the “I Want” song here, and what’s the take?

An immersive, non-musical production is also arriving at some point from London. Linking its Guardian review below.

The novel apparently entered the public domain in the U.S. on Jan. 1. Enterprising creatives are wasting no time. Hearing of these planned productions makes me wonder if we’ll also see another return engagement of Gatz. I live in D.C. and missed both of the past ones.

Excited to see how these go.
