It’s intermission during Gatsby dress rehearsal, and I’m relieved that things are going so much better today. Highlights include:
- The spine-tingling rapport evolving between Elizabeth Gaither and Jared Nelson.
- E. Faye Butler belting out Jazz Era tunes like a trumpet heralding in each scene. (Her raw technique is quite simply jaw-dropping.)
-Will Gartshore’s soulful interpretation of Nick Caraway…His chic vocal styling makes him sound like 1920’s radio host.
Now I’ve got to do a quick interview with The Washington Post. (Sports section writers are doing an interesting piece about my golf scene starring Jade Payette (Jordan Baker) and Jonathan Jordan (Nick Caraway) -- Look for it soon!)
Then...it’s on to Act II!
