"Larry Vanderveen performs a brilliant one man show as he smoothly assumes the persona of F. Scott Fitzgerald. Elegant in a well cut double breasted blazer, perfectly creased slacks and pristine white shirt and pocket square, Vanderveen as Fitzgerald reflects on his life and work. Vanderveen's gentle recital, effortlessly moving from irony to comic reminiscence to deep regret, conveys a superb impression of the brilliant but tragically star-crossed writer. Honest and unsparing of himself, he describes the struggles to succeed with his books - never truly fulfilled during his life - his terrible struggles with alcoholism and, most poignant of all, the beautiful, self destructive, doomed Zelda. Vanderveen's tone and expressions never pall; this is very well worth watching."
