You are leaving out Gatz, which has been successful with audiences and critics--perhaps the most critically praised Gatsby adaptation.

But its success is that is not an adaptation. It is a straight performance of the novel. It allows the story to be filtered through the narrator and the onstage readers. This points up what every other adaptation misses.

And who would have thought that 25 years later an 8 hour performance of The Great Gatsby would still tour regularly?
