In this smart, sensitive, and faithful adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 masterwork, the ill-fated relationships between a mysterious big spender; a young, married socialite; and their bevy of privileged friends are given center stage. Often THE GREAT GATSBY's 1920s glitz, glamour, and excesses are allowed to overshadow the story, but with audio theater all the action is driven by the characters talking to one another. And what talk it is. Rufus Sewell finds the tender bravado of Jay Gatsby, who is seeking to win back Daisy Buchanan, played with aching sublimity by Sarah Drew. Nate Corddry, playing Jazz Age narrator and sidekick Nick Carraway, deftly delivers some of Fitzgerald's most celebrated passages of heightened prose. From prosperity to heartbreak to tragedy--the Great American classic. B.P. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
