A classic is given a fabulous update!

I picked up this play because I am currently directing Antigone by Jean Anouilh (but a different translation). I wanted to get an idea of how this story was changed from the original by Sophocles. And I was so delighted to find the adaptation fresh, new and alive. The LA Theatre Works' actors do such a stellar job that while I was listening to the play I found myself closing my eyes to imagine the how the actors where moving on stage. If you are a lover of myths, classics, and/or theatre then you MUST listen to this play.

Truly a masterpiece!

I can't recommend this play enough! It is incredibly deep in its ideas and its emotions and there is just enough humor to keep it from being depressing. The actors are all fantastic and their voices fit their roles perfectly. You won't regret buying this one.
