There have been three film versions of Gatsby. An opera. The recent staged reading. None of them successful (tho some found fans.) Why? The book exists on the page and in the reader's imagination. An intimate experience. All the jazz age production numbers and ballads about lost love can't make up for it. Watch for this to sell tickets and disappoint audiences. The book has NEVER been successfully in another medium. Perhaps it's not meant to be.
